Oscar-nominated horror veteran Virginia Madsen, whose genre credits include CANDYMAN, THE PROPHECY (1995), and THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, is once again heading into some dark territory, having signed on to co-star in director Chris Peckover's thriller SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD, which is currently filming in Sydney, Australia.
Madsen joins the previously announced Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, and Ed Oxenbould in the cast, along with fellow new additions Patrick Warburton, Dacre Montgomery, and Aleks Mikic.
Written by Peckover and Zack Kahn, SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD is
set in a quiet American suburb on a snowy evening on the lead up to Christmas. Ashley (DeJonge), the regular babysitter for Deandra (Madsen) and Robert Lerner (Warburton), has to defend their 12-year-old son (Miller) from strangers breaking into the house — only to discover that this is far from a normal home invasion.
Madsen is always a welcome presence in a movie, and judging from the plot description it sounds like this one could be quite entertaining.
