Directed by John Erick Dowdle (Devil), The Coup follows an American family living in Southeast Asia who get caught in the middle of a violent revolution. They must flee to safety while being hunted by a murderous rebel leader. Dowdle wrote the script with his brother Drew Dowdle. Production is slated to begin in Thailand on Oct. 31.
Bold Films is financing with Drew Dowdle, Michel Litvak and David Lancaster producing, and Gary Michael Walters executive producing. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales.
Bell will play Annie Dwyer, a woman who is loved by everyone and has a seemingly perfect family life, but wonders sometimes if she should be happier than she is.
Bell wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film In a World…, which won best screenplay at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film about the life of voice-over actors was picked up by Roadside for U.S. distribution at the fest and has earned $2.7 million domestically to date.
Bell recently wrapped sports drama Million Dollar Arm and currently stars on Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital. She’s repped by UTA, The Burstein Company and Ziffren Brittenham.
