Two Move Into Creepy ‘Model Home’

Monique Gabriela Curnen (pictured; The Dark Knight, Contagion) and Kathy Baker (Machine Gun Preacher, Take Shelter) have been set to topline Model Home, the directorial feature debut from Patrick Cunningham.

The movie explores the practice of “live-in staging,” where recently evicted families are recruited to live in unsold properties. Curnen plays a single mother who begins to entertain dangerous fantasies while “staging” a model home in an otherwise empty development while Baker portrays a realtor who grows increasingly suspicious and alarmed.

The screenplay was co-written by Cunningham and William Frank. Filming begins this month.
