Elisabeth Moss, star of TV dramas "Mad Men" and "Top of the Lake", has signed on to lead the cast of writer-director Bryan Bertino’s horror THERE ARE MONSTERS, which will be produced by AMERICAN HUSTLE producer Richard Suckle and Adrienne Biddle, according to Screen Daily.
Bertino’s script follows...
...a single mom and her terrified young daughter who are trapped and tormented by a mysterious creature.
Embankment Films will handle international sales and has begun discussions with buyers heading into Cannes.
Suckle produces under his Atlas Entertainment banner alongside Biddle of Unbroken Pictures, who also produced Bertino’s MOCKINGBIRD, which we last heard word on in February.
Sonny Mallhi, exec on Bertino’s 2008 horror hit THE STRANGERS, as well as HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET and THE ROOMMATE, is executive producer.
Pre-production is due to get underway in fall 2014.
