Anonymous Content, Two Independent Eyes, and Anti-Worlds are teaming up for a brand new horror movie called ‘The Damning Of A Country Merchant’ which is set to star Peter Sarsgaard and Mackenzie Davis, according to Deadline.
Per the report, “Pulsar Content is handling international sales, while XYZ Films, UTA Independent Film Group, and CAA Media Finance have partnered for North America” and Matthew Rosenbaum has penned the script and is set to direct.
“Billed as a “twisted horror,” the pic is set in 1910 Indiana and follows the patriarch of a rural mercantile family (Sarsgaard) whose way of life is suddenly disrupted by a charismatic industrialist who has entered into a secret affair with his wife (Davis). When rising tensions mistakenly lead to the death of a customer, his wounded authority and masculinity leave him vulnerable to truly bizarre and horrific forces causing unimaginable chaos and terror.”
“We are thrilled to announce our first feature with Peter Sarsgaard and Mackenzie Davis,” Pulsar co-founders Gilles Sousa and Marie Garrett said. “It’s also a great opportunity to partner up again with XYZ Films, UTA Independent Film Group, and CAA Media Finance on this first feature which, we’re sure, will fit the international audience. The script is totally unique and will take the audience to an unexpected place.”
