The two Mormon missionaries who visit an eccentric man’s home with the goal of converting him are the central characters in the suspenseful movie, which was directed by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. But they had no idea that the man had devised a trap for them,” the logline says.
SAG-AFTRA has not yet granted the production permission to start shooting. The union, however, declared yesterday that it would not permit independent productions to film throughout the present strike. As a result, it’s possible that the actors’ strike will have an impact on the thriller’s Vancouver filming. One of the busiest centres for the creation of entertainment in North America is Vancouver. Popular shows shot in the city include “Supernatural,” “The Flash,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Lucifer,” “Riverdale,” “The 100,” “Thor: Love and Thunder,” etc.
The film’s directors, Beck and Woods, also wrote the thriller’s screenplay. The pair is recognised for penning the screenplay for John Krasinski’s ‘A Quiet Place,’ which starred Emily Blunt and brought in over $340 million worldwide. ‘Nightlight,’ ‘Haunt,’ ’65,’ and ‘The Boogeyman,’ all starring Chloe Bridges, are among their credits as a writing or directing team.
Grant recently finished filming his scene as Oompa-Loompa in the Timothée Chalamet-led movie “Wonka.” He also appears in the HBO television series “The Palace,” which stars Kate Winslet, and Jerry Seinfeld’s debut feature film, “Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story.” Forge in “Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves” is among the actor’s most recent projects. In ‘Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre,’ Greg Jonathan Fraser in “The Undoing,” Phillip in “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” and others. In “The Gentlemen,” Fletcher A Very English Scandal’s Jeremy Thorpe, etc.
Chloe East, best known for her roles as Monica Sherwood in Steven Spielberg’s autobiographical film “The Fabelmans,” Naomi in HBO Max’s dramedy “Generation,” and Reece in the ABC fantasy series “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” also has a major role in the film. Other roles played by the actress include Val Wishart in “Liv and Maddie,” Jenna Marshall in “The Wolf of Snow Hollow,” Lucy Rizzo in “Next Level,” Willow Green in “Ice,” etc.
