Luke Shanahan’s dark thriller Rabbit began filming today, though not with the originally announced lead star. Around this time last year it was reported that Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) was cast as the lead, but today we’ve got an update in the form of her replacement. Read on!
ScreenDaily reports that Adelaide Clemens (Silent Hill: Revelation) has taken on the lead role in the LevelK thriller. She will be playing Maude Ashton, a young medical student haunted by visions of her twin sister’s abduction, who discovers a secret society that might be connected to her missing sister.
“The film is an intense ride into the world of twins and telepathy that shows just how far we’ll go to save the person we love,” said producer David Ngo. “It’s Rosemary’s Baby for a new generation.”
The cast also includes Belgian actress Veerle Baetens and Alex Russell.
Rabbit will shoot for the next five weeks on locations in and around Adelaide, Australia.
Ngo produces the co-production between A Longshot Film and Projector Films.
