Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Kirby Bliss Blanton (THE GREEN INFERNO; pictured above) and Samuel Larsen (“Glee”; pictured below) have been cast in RECOVERY, which is starting production this summer. The two join Alex Shaffer (WIN WIN) and James Landry Hébert (GANGSTER SQUAD) in the Darrell Wheat-directed thriller.

The film follows Blanton’s character on the night of her high school graduation after her iPhone is stolen and tracked down with a “find my iPhone” app to a house where the demented tenants plan on kidnapping her and making her part of the family.

“With our increased addiction to technology, especially our smart phones, I wanted to explore the lengths people would go to retrieve something stolen… especially something with personal information on it, even when you know you’re in over your head” director Darrell Wheat stated.

The film is written by Kyle Arrington (“The Originals”) and Darrell Wheat– this will be Wheat’s directorial debut. Eric B. Fleischman’s EBF Productions (OUTLAW, TWO-BIT WALTZ) and Sean Tabibian are producing. Continental Media reps international rights.
