Adam Brody, Amanda Crew to Star in Thriller ‘The Wanting’

Adam Brody and Amanda Crew are set to star in the thriller “The Wanting” with “The Road” director Yam Laranas helming.

Rob Heydon is producing the adapted screenplay, which was written by “Milton’s Secret” scribe Donald Martin. Sid Ganis and Joni Sighvatsson are executive producing.

The film is based on a short story by Gin de Mesa and Laranas, about an all-American couple whose dream of starting a family is shattered after they move into the “perfect” New England neighborhood. Once settled, they descend into the depths of terror as they struggle to survive a genuine threat from a dark presence that appears to want to end their very lives.

Production is currently underway.

Brody currently stars in the Crackle series “StartUp” and will be seen in the upcoming Warner Bros. release “CHiPs.” He is repped by UTA.

Amanda Crew stars in the HBO comedy “Silicon Valley,” and has toplined such films as “Charlie St. Cloud,” “Sex Drive,” and “The Age of Adaline.” She is repped by UTA and Play Management.
