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.
