What do demonic possession, Ajax from The Warriors, and the son of Anthony Perkins have in common? They’re all coming to an all girls’ prep school in February, that’s what! Read on for your first details.
From the Press Release:
Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter, Sing Street), James Remar (pictured; The Warriors, Django Unchained, “Dexter”), and Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber, Any Given Sunday) have joined the cast of February, starring Emma Roberts (We’re the Millers, “American Horror Story”) and Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men,” Carriers). Principal photography is now under way in Ottawa on the film written and directed by Osgood Perkins, son of legendary Psycho actor Anthony Perkins.
February is produced by Unbroken Pictures’ Adrienne Biddle and Bryan Bertino (The Strangers), Rob Paris’ Paris Film, Inc. (Everly), Zed Filmworks’ Rob Menzies, and Alphonse Ghossein of Go Insane Films. Carissa Buffel and Kevin Matusow are executive producing under their Traveling Picture Show (The Quiet Ones, A Walk Among the Tombstones) banner along with 120dB Films’ Peter Graham and Steve Hayes, and Arianne Fraser. Highland Film Group (HFG) is handling international sales.
Said Biddle, Paris, and Bertino: “In Lucy Boynton we found an amazing young actor with unbelievable sensitivity and poise. She is the perfect complement to the brilliant pairing of Emma Roberts and Kiernan Shipka. And having James Remar and Lauren Holly join the team truly takes the film to another level.”
In February, beautiful and haunted Joan makes a bloody and determined pilgrimage across a frozen landscape toward a prestigious all girls prep school where Rose and Kat find themselves stranded after their parents mysteriously fail to retrieve them for winter break. As Joan gets closer, terrifying visions begin plaguing Kat while Rose watches in horror as she becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.
