Kasra Farahani’s The Waiting is heading to the SXSW Film Festival this weekend, boasting quite the impressive cast that includes James Caan (The Godfather, Misery), Logan Miller (Scouts Guide to the Apocalypse) and Keir Gilchrist (It Follows).
Mysterious events occur in The Waiting when two high school filmmakers decide to create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting neighbor.
In the below clip, watch as Caan doesn’t respond to the haunting as expected…going full Misery on a “spooked” door.
The fun begins as the duo’s suspicions grow and the tension mounts, explains the SXSW program, they realize too late that the man they’re manipulating is the last person they should’ve chosen for their project.
The Waiting was written by Mark Bianculli and Jeff Richard.
The full cast includes: James Caan, Logan Miller, Keir Gilchrist, Laura Innes, Edwin Hodge, Bailey Noble, Lili Reinhart, Anne Dudek, Mindy Sterling, and Tamlyn Tomita.
Star Thrower Entertainment, Ball and Chain Productions and Anonymous Content all partnered on the project.
