Alexander Skarsgard (Melancholia, “True Blood”) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) have joined the cast of the road trip gothic thriller Fever Heart, according to THR. The film will begin shooting in 2017.
The road movie follows an amnesiac (Skarsgard) who teams up with a quick-witted circus sharp shooter (Delevingne) to uncover his lost memories. With a charming and malevolent tracker named Blood Lieberman in violent pursuit, the pair needs to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive this strange land stained with mysticism.
For some reason, that synopsis is really appealing to me. It sounds original and quirky, which piques my interest.
Fever Heart is directed by Ben Briand and co-written by Briand and Kevin W. Koehler. It is is being produced by Picture Films’ Margot Hand and Matt Dooley with Michele Bennett and Nadine de Barros acting as executive producers.
De Barros states, “I’m a huge fan of Ben’s work. I’m overjoyed at the opportunity to work with him. Ben and Kevin’s script had me on the edge of my seat, and Alexander and Cara are the perfect match for this material.”
Fortitude International is handling international rights and will introduce the project to buyers at AFM, per the site.
