Way the hell back in April of 2011, we told you about a psychological thriller called THE STARE, set to star Winona Ryder and James Franco. Any chance at all you recall that bad boy?!?
No worries if not, as there isn't much to recognize. Ryder and Franco are still onboard, but the flick is now titled THE LETTER, and we have the trailer, poster and synopsis for the odd little art-house curio below. So what are you waiting for...
Written and directed by Jay Anania - THE LETTER centers on:
A playwright (two-time Academy Award® nominee Winona Ryder, “Black Swan,” “The Age of Innocence”) who begins to mentally unravel while preparing her latest work for the stage. She is plagued by dreams and visions of being watched, while also falling under the spell of her charismatic new leading man (played by Oscar® nominee James Franco, “127 Hours,” “Milk”). As the curtain call grows closer, she finds she can no longer decide if she is at the center of a manipulative plot or simply losing her grip on reality.
Directed by Jay Anania (”Shadows & Lies”), the film also stars Josh Hamilton (“J. Edgar”), Marin Ireland (“28 Hotel Rooms”) and Katherine Waterston (“Being Flynn”).
THE LETTER looks to have a theatrical release sometime this fall. We'll keep you posted!
