I Heart Murder: Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor to star in Matt Spicer thriller

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Actress Phoebe Dynevor and director Matt Spicer are both set to make their second feature with the Sony Pictures thriller I Heart Murder, a project that is currently shrouded in so much secrecy that all we know about it is the title and the fact that it's being described as a "female-driven thriller". So we'll have to wait and see just where Dynevor is going to drive this thing. Maybe it won't be fitting for Arrow in the Head in the long run, but for now the "thriller" description and the title I Heart Murder is giving us hope.

Spicer has written the screenplay for I Heart Murder with Tom O'Donnell. Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher's Red Wagon Entertainment are producing the film, while Maia Eyre will be overseeing for Sony.

Dynevor has been earning screen acting credits for over ten years, but they have all been in television and short films up to this point. She has had roles on the shoes Dickensian, Snatch (based on the Guy Ritchie film), and Younger. She recently got a lot of attention for her role on the Netflix series Bridgerton, where she plays the character Daphne Bridgerton. Her first feature film is the Sky Cinema Original The Colour Room, which is now in post-production.

An executive producer on the Hulu series Dollface, Spicer made his feature directorial debut with Ingrid Goes West (watch it HERE), which was sort of a dark comedy take on Single White Female in which the titular Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) becomes obsessed with a woman (played by Elizabeth Olsen) she sees on Instagram. I really liked that movie and have been looking forward to seeing what Spicer would do next. Here we go, I Heart Murder.

We'll be keeping an eye on I Heart Murder as the project heads toward production. Hopefully it won't be long before we find out just what sort of thriller it is.
