Chris Edwards to Direct Thriller ‘Unsound’

We’ve got an update for PalmStar Entertainment’s long-gestured project that once had Brad Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9, The Vanishing on 7th Street) attached to direct (we’re told he still may produce).

Chris Edwards is now attached to direct Unsound from a screenplay he co-wrote with Matthew Ross.

Jonathan Shukat and Kevin Frakes also produce.

The $10 million horror thriller features an “all in a never-before-seen original screenplay” and follows “A lonely, part-deaf, female deputy takes the first bold steps of her life by journeying through the underbelly of the Upper Midwest sex economy, on a personal quest to find a teenage sex-trafficking victim. Trusting a down-and-out ex pimp as her guide, she comes dangerously close to the edge, isolating everyone in her life, while uncovering a number of disquieting truths about herself, and the failed system she represents.
