Anna Kendrick Set to Star in a Psychological Thriller Titled ALICE, DARLING.
Anna Kendrick is starring Lionsgate’s upcoming psychological thriller film project titled Alice, Darling. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Mary Nighy, and the script was written by Alanna Francis.
The story follows Alice (Kendrick) “who is behaving strangely, keeping secrets about her mercurial boyfriend (Charlie Carrick) from her two best friends (Wunmi Mosaku and Kaniehtiio Horn). When the three friends take a girl’s trip out of town, all secrets are revealed when a local girl goes missing and Alice’s boyfriend arrives unannounced.”
Nighy said in a statement, “Alice, Darling is a subtle, nuanced story about coercion and control. As a director, I couldn’t wish for a better cast of talented actors and creatives to bring this important story to life. The chemistry between Anna Kendrick, Wunmi Mosaku, and Kaniehtiio Horn as the three friends is a joy to see.”
Lauren Bixby VP, Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Lionsgate said, “Alice, Darling is just the kind of film we are looking to champion at Lionsgate, a captivating psychological thriller with three strong women at the center. We are excited to support this amazing female-led team of filmmakers and diverse cast.”
The producers at Babe Nation Films added, “We strive to tell female stories unflinchingly, with nuance, care, and authenticity. Alice, Darling will keep audiences riveted, but ultimately, it is a story of female resilience and empowerment. We are so proud to be working with Alanna, Mary, our brilliant cast, Elevation, Castelletto, and Lionsgate on this project.”
