India Eisley, Jason Isaacs Starring in Thriller ‘Behind the Glass’

India Eisley, Jason Isaacs, and Harrison Gilbertson will star in the independent thriller “Behind the Glass,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Israeli filmmaker Assaf Bernstein, “The Debt” helmer, is making his North American directorial debut. Shooting is set to begin this November in Winnipeg.

The production companies are Ace in the Hole Productions, Primary Wave Entertainment, and Dana Lustig Productions. Producers are Gig Kaplan, co-founder of wix.com; Brad Kaplan (“Mr. Church”), and Dana Lustig (“Brick”).

Eisley will play a shy and reclusive 18-year-old high school girl alienated by her parents and known as an outcast by her peers. Her only confidant is her own reflection in the mirror, from which she derives comfort, a sense of belonging, and ultimately, her own demise.

Isaacs, best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films, will portray her father. Gilbertson will play a young man torn between the love of his girlfriend and her best friend.

“India and Jason are such a perfect match for these complex roles. It is as if they stepped out of the script, or rather a dream I once had,” Bernstein said. “India will adeptly bring the double role of Maria/Airam to life, an amazingly powerful, rare, and dynamic role where she plays both innocent and dark in the same instance.”

Eisley’s credits include “Underworld: Awakening,” “Kite,” “Adolescence,” and Netflix’s “Clinical.” Isaacs is currently shooting “Hotel Mumbai” and will be seen in the upcoming Netflix series “The OA” opposite Brit Marling. Gilbertson’s credits include “Fallen” and “Need for Speed.”

Bernstein is repped by Primary Wave and WME. Eisley is repped by ICM Partners, Justice & Ponder, and Patti Felker. Isaacs is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment, Gersh, and Independent in the U.K. Gilbertson is repped by Primary Wave, APA, Helen Pandos Management in Australia, and attorney Gregg Gellman.
