Deadline has news of another interesting film project coming out of the Cannes Virtual Market. British actress Claire Foy will star in an original psychological horror film titled Dust that will be set in Oklahoma during the 1930s.
Westworld writer Karrie Crouse penned the script and will co-direct the film with William Joines. The project from MadRiver is seeking international partners this week with Mad Dog Films and Secret Engine producing.
Foy will play a young mother in 1930s Oklahoma who is haunted by her past and trapped in horrifying dust storms. She becomes convinced that her family is threatened by a mysterious presence and takes extraordinary measures to protect them.
Foy is best known from her work on the Netflix series The Crown. She recently starred in Damien Chazelle’s First Man and attempted to take over the Lisbeth Salander mantle from Rooney Mara in Sony’s soft-reboot The Girl In The Spider’s Web.
Dust sounds like an interesting concept and we’ll have to wait to hear when they plan on starting production on the horror movie.
