EFM 2017: Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott Star in a Piercing New Movie!

Piercing

Have you seen The Eyes of My Mother yet? Well, hurry up because that film’s director Nicolas Pesce has another film in the can titled Piercing. Don’t let the silly artwork fool you. This one’s reportedly pretty damned dark.

Variety reports that Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott have wrapped production on Pesce’s psychological thriller.

Piercing is based on Ryu Murakami’s 1994 novel of the same name. Abbott plays a man who kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business, with a plan to check into a hotel, call an escort service and kill an unsuspecting prostitute. His plan is thwarted by the alluring and mysterious call girl — played by Wasikowska — who arrives at his room, leading to a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse.

Additional cast members include Laia Costa (Victoria), Maria Dizzia (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Wendell Pierce (Treme) and Marin Ireland (Hell or High Water).

Memento Films International will launch sales at the Berlin Film Festival. UTA Independent Film Group arranged financing for the film and will co-represent North American rights with WME.

Piercing is produced by Borderline Films’ year-old label Borderline Presents. Producers are Josh Mond, Antonio Campos & Schuyler Weiss of Borderline Films along with Jacob Wasserman. Executive producers are Sean Durkin (Borderline Films), Max Born & Avi Stern, Emilie Georges & Naima Abed (Memento Films International / Paradise City), Al Di (YL Pictures) & Phil Hoelting.
