CANNES: Benjamin Walker, Theresa Palmer Starring

Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer will star in the psychological thriller “2:22″ with production set to start in Australia in October.

Good Universe is launching international sales in Cannes.

Producers are Pandemonium’s Bill Mechanic, Walk The Walk Entertainment’s Steve Hutensky and Lightstream Pictures’ Paul Currie, who is also directing from a script written by Todd Stein with Nathan Parker and Currie.
