SOLOMON'S CHILDREN is co-written by Justin Trefgarne and Robert Mitchell, to be directed by Justin Trefgarne. It is being produced by Alex Mandell of Redfoot Pictures and Leo Pearlman of Fulwell73. XYZ Films are handling Sales.
The film is a dark procedural thriller that blends the seat-of-the-pants momentum of Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners with the psychological complexity of Jonathan Demme's Silence Of The Lambs. Sharna Shaw is a female detective who has relocated from the city to the rural backwater she fled as a teenager. When she is called to investigate the incarceration of several woman in strange, cult-like circumstances, it becomes increasingly difficult for her to deny the real reasons for her return, nor the violence she fled more than ten years ago. As the case deepens, so her wounds begin to show themselves and a shocking showdown awaits between Sharna and the demons she can't escape.
Production is scheduled to begin early 2018.
