Tuppence Middleton is set to star in David Bruckner’s thriller “Intrusion,” which David Linde’s Lava Bear Films and QED International are financing and co-producing, TheWrap has learned.
Bruckner, who directed the grisly demoness opening sequence “Amateur Night” in the horror anthology “V/H/S,” will helm from a script by L.D. Goffigan.
Lava Bear will produce with Quadrant Pictures’ Doug Davison (“Oldboy”), QED’s Bill Block (“Elysium”) and Tariq Jalil. QED’s John Hegeman will executive produce, while Lava Bear president Tory Metzger will oversee production.
“Intrusion” follows newly single photographer Lila Harper (Middleton), who has just inherited and moved into her grandmother’s San Francisco home. Her dreams of a happy, independent life are shattered when she becomes the target of organized stalkers who mysteriously invade her home and her entire life.
The British actress, who recently shared scenes with James McAvoy in Danny Boyle’s “Trance,” is currently filming “The Imitation Game” with Benedict Cumberbatch. She’ll soon be seen in Wachowski Starship’s epic sci-fi movie “Jupiter Ascending,” as well as Pascal Chaumeil’s adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel “A Long Way Down,” which also stars Aaron Paul and Pierce Brosnan.
QED’s upcoming films include David Ayer’s action-thrillers “Sabotage” and “Fury,” which stars Brad Pitt.
Middleton is represented by UTA and London-based agency Conway van Gelder Grant.
