Amber Heard to Star in ‘In the Fire’
Amber Heard and Spain’s Eduardo Noriega (“Vantage Point”) will star in 19th century-set supernatural thriller “In the Fire.”
The film, which will shoot in Italy, is directed by Conor Allyn (“No Man’s Land”).
Principal photography is set to start Feb. 21 in Italy’s Apulia region. The pic is being produced by Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi’s Entertainment company ILBE, Paradox Studios and Angel Oak Films.
Angel Oak Films is also selling “In the Fire” which it says is sparking interest at the EFM.
“In the Fire,” which is penned by Allyn, Pascal Borno and Silvio Muraglia, takes place on a farm in Colombia in the 1890s. A couple with a young autistic son have to face both the villagers and the local priest who worry the boy is possessed by demonic forces and is the reason for all the village’s woes.
After the death of his wife, Don Marquez (Noriega) brings in Grace Victoria Burnham, an American psychiatrist (Heard) to find out what is ailing the boy, played by Lorenzo McGovern Zaini (“American Night”). Heard’s character accurately diagnoses and heals him while facing up to the villagers.
Said Iervolino: “We are excited to bring this amazing story to life with Conor, and the dynamic trio of Amber, Eduardo and Lorenzo, who gel so beautifully. And we’re always proud to bring another high quality film project to Italy.”
