Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick is reteaming with Lionsgate for the psychological thriller Alice, Darling, which is now in production in Canada.
Alice, Darling focuses on Alice (Kendrick), a young woman who begins acting strangely. She starts keeping secrets about her mysterious and mercurial boyfriend (Carrick) from her two best friends (Mosaku and Horn). When the three take a girls’ trip out of town, secrets begin unraveling. A local girl goes missing and Alice’s boyfriend shows up unannounced, which leads to suspicions and so much more.
Mary Nighy is directing the new film, which has a script by Alanna Francis.
"Alice, Darling is a subtle, nuanced story about coercion and control. As a director, I couldn't wish for a better cast of talented actors and creatives to bring this important story to life," says Nighy. "The chemistry between Anna Kendrick, Wunmi Mosaku, and Kaniehtiio Horn as the three friends is a joy to see."
Lionsgate will handle worldwide distribution of the film, except in Canada, which will be handled by Elevation.
Kendrick most recently starred in the HBO Max series "Love Life" and Netflix's feature "Stowaway". She also reprised her voice role as Poppy in "Trolls World Tour" and received acclaim for her performance in Lionsgate's "A Simple Favor".
