‘Big Love’s’ Melora Walters Joins Indie ‘Sacrifice’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Drama curently shooting in Houston

Melora Walters has boarded helmer-scribe Michael Cohn’s thriller “Sacrifice,” the debut feature from JuntoBox Films.

The movie is in production in Houston, with Jeanine Rohn and Joseph Semense producing. JuntoBox chief Forest Whitaker and Nina Yang are exec producing.

“Sacrifice” follows four teenagers from a small Texas town as they come face-to-face with their own consciences after a tragic accident. Dermot Mulroney also came on board this week.

Walters will portray the mother of two young men –an insecure 15 year-old (portrayed by Austin Abrams) and a football star, Hank (played by Luke Kleintank) — who are both ensnared in a web of unforeseen consequences during a celebratory hunting trip.

Walters recently completed shooting the lead role in the indie feature “Underdogs.” She had a recurring role on HBO’s “Big Love”; feature credits include “Case 219,” “The Butterfly Effect” and “Cold Mountain.”

She is repped by APA, Alan Iezman at Shelter Entertainment, and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum.
