With this year’s Sundance Film Festival bringing the newest film from director Ti West, a found footage film he co-directed entitled V/H/S, Deadline has the scoop on who will be joining him for his next project.
The outlet is reporting that Liv Tyler has joined the upcoming project, The Side Effect. The film will follow a woman who becomes part of a pharmaceutical company’s strange experiment that will see her spending several months in space. While there, she somehow becomes pregnant and begins losing her grasp on reality as she tries to figure out how this could happen and how to get out of this astronomical prison she’s stuck in.
Of the movie, West said:
Although it is still somewhat of a horror film, it is much more psychological than any of my previous efforts. It was essential that I find an actress who could portray a wide range of emotion and always earn the audience’s sympathy no matter what the situation. As soon as I sat down with Liv, it was obvious she was the one.
While I wasn’t a huge fan of West’s last film, The Innkeepers, I couldn’t be a bigger fan of West’s House Of The Devil, and I fully believe that he is one of the most original voices in horror films to come along in quite some time. Tyler is a fine actress and one that should fit perfectly in this type of project.
