Natasha Henstridge (“The Whole Nine Yards”), Angus MacFadyen (“Cradle Will Rock”) and Peter Fonda will star in the thriller “Second Skin” for Alliance Atlantis’ Le Monde Entertainment. Darrell Roodt (“Sarafina”) directs.
“Second,” which begins production May 8 on location in South Africa, concerns a man (MacFadyen) who opens a small-town bookstore in order to escape his connections to a mobster (Fonda). When he meets a mysterious stranger (Henstridge), the bookstore owner is reluctantly drawn back to his dark past.
Film Afrika’s David Wicht will produce the film, with Jeff Morton and David Lancaster serving as exec producers. Alliance Atlantis Pictures Intl. will handle worldwide distribution on the feature.
Henstridge is repped by the William Morris Agency, MacFadyen by ICM and Fonda by IFA Talent Agency.
