The Woman 2 aka Darlin' poster warns don't mess with mother's nature

For those who might not know, Lucky McKee's 2011 horror flick THE WOMAN was a sequel to a movie called OFFSPRING. And today we have word that a third entry in the cannibal series is heading our way soon via lead actress Pollyanna McIntosh who is making her feature directing debut with the film, DARLIN'. And today we have the movie's poster to share with you guys.

Here's the rundown of the new flick:

...picks up 10 years after the events of The Woman when McIntosh’s titular character escaped with the then-young Darlin’ in tow. Now Darlin’ is in a Catholic home for girls while the Woman resides in an all-female homeless encampment. Naturally, trouble is a-brewing.

Since starring as The Woman in THE WOMAN, McIntosh has gone on to roles in such hit TV fare as HAP AND LEONARD and a little show you may have heard of called THE WALKING DEAD. She will also be starring in this new movie and she penned the screenplay as well. Impressive, right? McIntosh also talked to EW about what it means to make her feature-film directorial debut:

Having the opportunity to bring together such a talented cast and crew as a director was a thrill, and I loved every insane minute of making Darlin'. Our lead, Lauryn Canny, is pure lightning, and I can’t wait for people to see her talent as Darlin’. Watching her work with actors I’ve long admired, like Bryan Batt and Nora Jane Noone, was amazing, and a nicer bunch of folks to be in an indie foxhole with I can’t imagine!

McIntosh also revealed what parts her TWD castmates will be playing in the film. 

It was also especially joyful to work with my Walking Dead family Sabrina Gennarino [Tamiel], Thomas Francis Murphy [Brion] and Cooper Andrews [Jerry]. In Darlin’, Sabrina is wholly human as a sex worker who had her child taken into care when she was young and is now finding comfort in her friendships amongst the homeless community. Thomas Francis Murphy plays a brilliant cameo as a regal cardinal covering up the secrets of his church — it was a joy to realize I’d cast my right and left on TWD as that British party favorite ‘tarts and vicars’!

And then there’s Cooper, who is a revelation as the kindhearted nurse struggling to make sense of his hospital being run by the church and finding deep connection with the feral teen in his care. I think it’ll be a treat for fans of him as Jerry on The Walking Dead to see him just as warm and macho, but as a married gay man longing for a family. He and I had some both moving and comedic scenes together as Tony and the Woman, and it was a delight. The man has a lot of heart, and as a multifaceted filmmaker himself, he was a great mascot for the can-do attitude of the set.

The film will have three screenings at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas: 

I’m proud of everyone who worked so hard to bring this film to life, and I can’t wait to see it with a large audience for the first time at SXSW. Being in Austin, we’re lucky enough to have many Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead family at the premiere too to support the film.

Once again, the film will have three screenings at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas so hopefully, this means we will be seeing a trailer for the movie sooner rather than later. Are you excited for DARLIN' aka THE WOMAN 2 aka OFFSPRING 3? Let us know below!
