Dagg followed up his 2015 debut feature River with Sweet Virginia, which premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and was released by IFC.
The Importance of Blood, written by James Breen, portrays a mysterious young woman named Rose who returns to her hometown years after disappearing to seek reconciliation with her estranged family. By doing so, she threatens her relationship with Malcolm, a caring but manipulative man who harbors dangerous secrets of his own. There is no word on casting for the feature.
Sculptor’s Warren Goz and Eric Gold are producing with Circle of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis and Matt Smith, and Chris Armogida.
“We’re really thrilled to have Jamie on board,” Goz and Gold said Tuesday in a statement. “His gift for crafting performance-driven stories and his passionate and disciplined approach to filmmaking makes him an ideal choice for this chilling tale.”
James Masciello of the private equity firm Raven Capital will executive produce The Importance of Blood. Sculptor Media’s upcoming projects include Trading Paint, a race-car action feature starring John Travolta, Michael Madsen and Shania Twain.
Circle of Confusion’s recent film credits include Spare Parts, starring George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis and Marisa Tomei, and American Ultra, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.
Dagg is repped by WME, Grandview and Cuffe Owens at Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.
