'Suburgatory' Star Jane Levy Lands Lead in Gold Circle Horror Thriller (Exclusive)
Suburgatory star Jane Levy is set to top-line Gold Circle’s In a Dark Place, a horror thriller that is being directed by Bharat Nalluri. Roy Lee and Jim Wedaa are producing.
The thriller centers on a young American woman who moves to England to become the governess of a porcelain doll, which the family treats as its own son. When the family leaves for a holiday, the woman begins to think the doll is haunted and may be alive.
A May production is being eyed.
The film will be fully financed by Gold Circle, and company president Paul Brooks will produce. (The company last made the musical comedy Pitch Perfect.)
Nalluri directed the period romantic comedy Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and has helmed episodes of Brit TV series MI-5 and the CW’s Emily Owens, M.D.
On top of starring in Suburgatory, Levy is making her horror-movie debut as the female lead in the upcoming remake of Evil Dead, which opens April 5.
She is repped by WME and Sloane Offer.
