Liv Tyler starring in Ti West's next thriller, The Side Effect

Ti West (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, THE INNKEEPERS) has nabbed a mighty big fish to star in his next thriller: Liv Tyler! Deadline is reporting that Tyler in on board West's THE SIDE EFFECT (not to be confused with Steven Soderbergh's SIDE EFFECTS). Double Hope Films’ Ted Hope will produce alongside frequent West collaborator Peter Phok.

In THE SIDE EFFECT, Tyler will play Catherine Rigby, a woman who spends several months alone in space as an experimental subject for a global pharmaceutical company, and finds herself inexplicably pregnant. Paranoia and hysteria reign as the truth behind conception grows more elusive and she remains stranded in space.

West had this to say about the project: “Although it is still somewhat of a horror film, it is much more psychological than any of my previous efforts... It was essential that I find an actress who could portray a wide range of emotion and always earn the audience’s sympathy no matter what the situation. As soon as I sat down with Liv, it was obvious she was the one.”

West's movies may not be for everyone, but you've got to admit he's certainly developed a signature style. It will be interesting to see how THE SIDE EFFECT progresses...
