JK Simmons, Fernanda Urrejola to star in The Woods
Directed by writer-filmmaker Michelle Schumacher, the film also stars Allen Leech and Isabelle Anay
JK Simmons, Allen Leech, and Fernanda Urrejola are set to headline the upcoming thriller, The Woods.
Directed by writer-filmmaker Michelle Schumacher, who is also Simmons' wife, The Woods will have Carolyn Carpenter sharing screenplay credits with the director.
The story follows a teenage girl suffering from anxiety due to a tragic event from her past who finds herself hunted through the woods by a sociopath on a murderous rampage.
"I didn't want to play any truly scary bad guys when our kids were young, partly because of how it might affect them if they saw the film and also because I didn't want to bring that energy home with me after an intense day on the set," said Simmons.
The film, which also stars Isabelle Anay, will be backed by Randle Schumacher's Rubber Tree Productions.
