Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga has officially signed on for the leading role in Bryce McGuire’s upcoming feature-length directorial debut titled Bad Bloom.
Bryce Maguire is directing the film, described as a horror fairytale that portrays a family living in isolation on a remote island to keep an unknown creature at bay. Their tightly guarded reality begins to unravel when one of the children learns the monster they feared is not the monster they envisioned.
The film will be produced by Jon Rubinstein and Galt Niederhoffer through their Authentic Management Productions along with Ruminant Films’ Renn Hawkey. Production is expected to begin later this year.
