Lena Headey (above, Game of Thrones, Dredd, 300, The Purge, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) is set to star in a sinister new horror called The Woman in the Woods.
Written and to be directed by Russell Friedenberg (Wind Walkers, Among Ravens), The Woman in the Woods will be produced by Academy Award nominated producer Heather Rae (Frozen River, The Dry Land). Myriad/ Scoundrel will begin sales on the new film at the American Film Market.
Director Friedenberg stated, “‘I’m totally amped to bring The Woman of the Woods to audiences around the world with Myriad Pictures and the incredibly talented Lena Headey. Lena brings an authenticity and emotional power to her work that is uncompromising. And Myriad has a track record of elevated and poignant work that we are proud to be a part of. Full speed ahead!”
Kelsay (Lena Headey) and her husband have just decided to separate. They agree to go on one last family camping trip in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest to break the news to their young daughter. But an evil presence lurks in the woods – and it soon influences the daughter who succumbs to a strange and frightening world of violence. Upon their return to Seattle, a police detective investigating a series of missing persons becomes convinced that the daughter is responsible. Kelsey must prove her daughter’s innocence – but to do so she must face the terrifying entity – and finds herself spiraling into greater and greater danger.
