Monique Gabriela Curnen and Kathy Baker have joined the indie thriller “Model Home,” to be directed by Patrick Cunningham in his feature debut.
Cunningham co-wrote the screenplay with William Frank.
High Windows Films is the production company. Co-producers are Will Clevinger (“Devil’s Carnival”), Jarod Einsohn and Ben Rabbers. John Frank and Douglas Britton exec produce.
Pic explores the practice of “live-in staging,” where recently evicted families are recruited to live in unsold properties. Curnen plays a single mother who begins to entertain dangerous fantasies while “staging” a model home in an otherwise empty development while Baker portrays a realtor who grows increasingly suspicious and alarmed.
Filming is slated for later this month.
Curnen was seen in “Contagion” and Baker was in “Take Shelter.” She is represented by Kohner and Authentic. Baker is repped by Paradigm and the Hofflund Co.
