Based on the short “Laura Hasn’t Slept,” the movie centers on a doctor whose mind begins to turn on her after she witnesses a horrifying occurrence. The logline reads: “After a bizarre, traumatic event involving a patient, a psychiatrist begins to experience terrifying occurrences that only she can see, and grows increasingly convinced that she’s being pursued by a malevolent supernatural force.”
Parker Finn will write and direct “Something’s Wrong With Rose,” which is slated to start production in New Jersey this October. Temple Hill is producing for Paramount Players, a division of the studio that creates genre films from contemporary voices.
Bacon, whose parents are actors Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, began her career in Hollywood at the age of 11 when she was cast in the 2005 film “Loverboy,” which was directed by her father and starred her mother. She later appeared on the TNT series “The Closer” before taking time off to study at Brown University.
Bacon returned to the small screen in Netflix’s hit teen series “13 Reasons Why,” in which she portrayed the character of Skye Miller, and she more recently joined the cast of “Narcos: Mexico” in its second season. Following her role as Carrie Layden in “Mare of Easttown,” Bacon will star in Jason Katim’s upcoming Amazon series “Forget Normal.”
Bacon is repped by The Kohner Agency, MGMT. Entertainment, Schreck Rose Dapello Adams Berlin & Dunham. Parker is repped by CAA, Grandview and Jeff Hynick of Jackoway, Austen.
