XYZ Films has boarded Wigwam Films’ Farsi-language horror film UNDER THE SHADOW, which is currently underway in Jordan with BAFTA-nominated director Babak Anvari at the helm, reports Screen Daily.

Set in post-revolution Tehran, during the Iran-Iraq war, the film follows...

...a young mother who remains with her six-year-old daughter when others are fleeing local fighting.

The mother soon begins to believe an unexploded missile has carried evil spirits into her home and possessed her daughter.

The film is produced and financed by London-based Wigwam Films, and is supported by the Doha Film Institute, Creativity Capital and MENA Film.

Narges Rashidi (ÆON FLUX) leads the cast, with Bobby Naderi (ARGO) and Ray Haratian (A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT) also set to appear.

Producers for Wigwam are Lucan Toh, Emily Leo, and Oliver Roskill with Donall McCusker on board as co-producer.

XYZ Films is handling North American sales.
