We are what we hide.
Fresh off his role as a possessed father on Fox’s “The Exorcist,” John Cho is headed back into the genre arena with Searching, a new thriller coming from Screen Gems.
The trailer for the Unfriended-style horror film, which plays out on a computer screen, sees Cho frantically searching for clues about his missing daughter’s whereabouts. True, we’ve seen a handful of horror films in the recent past take this same approach, but this one looks pretty damn intense and well done. Color us interested.
Debra Messing also stars in Searching, arriving August 3.
“After David Kim’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.”
Joseph Lee and Michelle La star alongside Cho and Messing.
Aneesh Chaganty directed and co-wrote with Sev Ohanian. Timur Bekmambetov produced with Sev Ohanian, Adam Sidman and Natalie Qasabian
