Genre plain Samara weaving (The Babysitter, Mayhem, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, ready or not, etc.) have a role in Scream 6as recently finished filming – and she is already in full swing with another genre project, the comic thriller Borderline. Variety reports it Borderline currently recording in Vancouver, with The Babysitter: Killer Queen writer Jimmy Warden at the helm, making his directorial debut.
Warden’s Borderline script, which was once blacklisted, centers on
a hopelessly romantic sociopath who escapes from a mental institution and invades the home of a ’90s pop superstar. He just wants to be loved; she just wants to survive.
Weaving is joined by Eric Dane (Euphoria), Ray Nicholson (Something from Tiffany’s), Alba Baptista (Mrs. Harris goes to Paris), and Jimmie Fails (The last black man in San Francisco).
Borderline is funded by Productivity Media, Inc. The film’s producers are The babysitter writer Brian Duffield, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara of LuckyChap Entertainment and Hadeel Reda of Red A Entertainment. Productivity Media’s William G. Santor, Andrew Chang-Sang and John Hills serve as executive producers along with Colleen Camp, Brightlight Pictures’ Shawn Williamson and Jameson Parker and Radiant Films International’s Mimi Steinbauer. Denise Loren and LuckyChap’s Bronte Payne are co-producing.
Steinbauer said that “Samara, Dane and Ray are the perfect cast to lead Jimmy’s whip-smart, comedic thriller on the edge of your seat through all its twists and turns.“
I am a fan of Samara Weaving’s work and Borderline sounds interesting to me, especially since the authors of both Nurse movie is involved so I will definitely check this movie out when the time comes. How do Borderline sound for you? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
Warden also wrote the screenplay for director Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming film Cocaine bearwhich is exactly what it sounds like: a movie about a bear’s cocaine-fueled rampage.
