It happens, man. You’re walking along and minding your own business, and then BOOM! You’re thrown into the back of a van with a mysterious captor whom you end up falling madly in love with. Trouble is… there are consequences. Deadly consequences.
Deadline is reporting that Saoirse Ronan (pictured; The Lovely Bones, Byzantium) and Cynthia Nixon (“Sex and the City”) have been set to star in psychological thriller Stockholm, Pennsylvania, which is scripted and to be directed by Nikole Beckwith.
The film is an adaptation of a play, and the script made the 2012 Black List and won the 2012 Nicholl Fellowship and came through the Sundance Screenwriting Lab. Greg Ammon is producing through his banner Fido Features in association with Olympus Pictures’ Leslie Urdang and Dan Halsted.
Ronan stars as developmentally stunted Leia, a young woman raised by a kidnapper who now struggles to acclimate to her actual parents after 20 years of separation. Nixon plays the girl’s grief-stricken mother, who goes to extreme lengths to recapture her daughter’s love. Jason Isaacs plays her captor, and David Warshofsky plays her father.
Not sure how Dread-worthy this one will end being, but we’re gonna keep our eyes on it and report back should there be a need to.
