Fresh off of drawing rave reviews for his directing duties on “Hannibal,” David Slade is headed back to the big screen for a new film called The Widow. Read on for the first details, and look for much more soon!
THR reports that Slade (pictured; Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night) has come aboard to direct the flick for Vendome Pictures. Penned by Ray Wright, the psychological thriller centers on a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence.
Vendome CEO Philippe Rousselet will produce the film alongside Steve Golin and Alix Madigan of Anonymous Content. Vendome is financing the film, with plans to commence production later this year. The project is out to actresses.
“We are thrilled to be working on this piece with David. He is such a dynamic filmmaker, and we are excited about his vision to make this movie a throwback to some of the most iconic thrillers in cinematic history — not to mention the two females leads being the strongest and most interesting we have seen in some time,” Rousselet said.
