While he was once developing the A Nightmare on Elm Street prequel for New Line Cinema, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer director John McNaughton is set to return for psychological horror thriller The Harvest, for which Michael Shannon (Bug) and Samantha Morton (John Carter, Minority Report) have come aboard to star alongside Natasha Calis (The Possession), reports Variety. Pic co-stars Charlie Tahan (Frankenweenie), Leslie Lyles and Meadow Williams.
Written by Stephen Lancellotti, “‘The Harvest’ stars Morton and Shannon as a married couple with medical backgrounds and a sick son (Tahan) who lives secluded in a controlled environment until a young girl (Calis) moves in next door and gives him hope of a better life. As the teens grow closer, the tight-knit world his over-protective mother has created begins to unravel.”
It has been 11 years since McNaughton’s Wild Things hit theaters.
Production is under way in New York.
