Actress Louise Linton has found her next film role, a murder-mystery movie called “Out of Hand.”

Linton, who recently starred in her directorial debut “Me You Madness” and is married to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, will star in “Out of Hand” alongside Pierson Fodé (“Man From Toronto”) and William Baldwin.

Brian Skiba (“The 2nd”) is directing the project for Toric Films. Filming is currently underway in Los Angeles and Lake Tahoe, Calif.

“Out of Hand” is about a woman in the center of a thriller about passion, manipulation and deceit, and is described as being in the vein of “Basic Instinct” meets “Cape Fear.” The film tells the story of a professor of literature and psychology at Berkeley, Dr. Valerie Cross (Louise Linton), and her oppressive lover, David (Pierson Fodé), who become suspects in the vicious murder of one of her female students. 

Sean Crayne wrote the original screenplay.

Producing partners Ojan Missaghi and David Wachs of Toric Films are producing “Out of Hand.” The film’s executive producers are Gurpreet Chandhoke and Dr. Donald Basile.

Louise Linton is known for films such as “Cabin Fever,” “Intruder” and “Scavengers,” and she’ll next appear in “Serial Daters Anonymous” in 2022. Her film “Me You Madness,” a comedy which she wrote, directed and starred in alongside Ed Westwick, was released by STX in February 2021 and will premiere on Peacock later this month.

Pierson Fodé is known for playing Thomas Forrester on “The Bold and the Beautiful” and is a two-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee for his work on the soap opera. He’ll next be seen in the Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson film “Man From Toronto.”

William Baldwin is best known for “Backdraft” and recently starred in “The Rebels of PT-218” and the upcoming family drama “Dakota.”

Brian Skiba’s film “The 2nd” with Ryan Philippe was a hit when it debuted on Netflix, and his next film “Pursuit” for Lionsgate stars John Cusack and Emile Hirsch.
