Cruel Intentions alum Selma Blair is ready to get a little crazy with Nicolas Cage, as she’s set to star opposite the veteran actor in the horror film MOM AND DAD. Crank helmer Brian Taylor is writing and directing.
In the film, a teenage girl and her little brother must survive a wild 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents (Blair and Cage) to turn violently on their own kids.
Tim Zajaros and Christopher Lemole are producing through their Armory Films. Jere Hausfater is executive producing through Aldamisa International, with Cassian Elwes joining partners Zajaros and Lemole as an executive producer with Zeal Media Co. XYZ Films will distribute.
Blair recently appeared in the critically acclaimed FX series The People Vs. O.J. Simpson as Kris Jenner and on the big screen in Mothers and Daughters with Susan Sarandon. She’ll next be seen in the drama Geezer starring Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong.
Cage, who joined the project in February, previously worked with director Taylor on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. He recently appeared with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Open Road’s Snowden.
Production on Mom and Dad is expected to start in Kentucky in July.
