Excision, Trash Fire, and Suburban Gothic‘s Ricky Bates Jr.’s has set the home-invasion horror movie Tone Deaf as his next, reports Variety.
Amanda Crew (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, The Faculty, “The X-Files”) are starring in the film, which is already in production from Circle of Confusion (producers of “The Walking Dead”), Lightning Entertainment and Hindsight Media.
Crew portrays a woman who leaves for a quiet weekend in the country after losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship. She rents a country house from an old-fashioned widower, played by Patrick, who’s struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon, two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate.
Producers are Circle of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis, Brad Mendelsohn and Matt Smith; along with Brion Hambel and Paul Jensen of Best Medicine Productions. Executive producers are Lightning’s James C. Walker and Andrew Brown, as well as Hindsight Media’s James Swarbrick and James Scott.
