Danner and Kendall in ‘Farmhouse’

NEW YORK — Blythe Danner and Katherine Kendall (“Swingers”) are set to star in the indie drama “The Farmhouse,” which Marcus Spiegel will direct for Fred Berner Films and Image Group Entertainment.

Lensing will begin early next month in the farmlands of southern New Jersey. Berner will serve as executive producer while Michael Schlossman and Bill Dalessandro Jr. of Image Group will act as co-executive producers. Elaine Frontain Bryant will handle producing chores.

In the pic, Danner will play a woman who accidentally murders her daughter. Her husband and son cover up the murder by convincing a mysterious visitor (Kendall) to take the missing daughter’s place.

” ‘The Farmhouse’ is an exciting project — at once literate, bizarre and emotionally rich,” said Berner.

Danner’s credits include “The Prince of Tides,” “The Great Santini” and “Mr. and Mrs. Bridge.” Berner has produced both Hollywood and independent films, including Maggie Greenwald’s “The Ballad of Little Jo,” Louis Malle’s “Vanya on 42nd Street” and “Miss Firecracker” for Corsair Pictures.

Image Group Entertainment is a unit of MTI/The Image Group Inc., a film and TV producer.
