Olivia Thirlby, Alan Ritchson to Star in Magical Realism Story ‘Shadow Girl’

Olivia Thirlby, Alan Ritchson, Megan Fox, and Jim Gaffigan have come on board the magical realism story “Shadow Girl.”

Production companies are Hipzee, Boundary Stone Films, and Wrangle Entertainment​. Claudia Myers is directing from her own script.

CAA is handling domestic distribution rights with Myriad Pictures taking worldwide at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif. Maria Dizzia and Tito Ortiz are also starring.

“Shadow Girl” centers on a young woman who has faded to the point of becoming invisible and must find her way back into the world. After more than a decade of solitude and making a living in the shadows as a paparazzi photographer, she meets a disgraced MMA fighter working as a bouncer and discovers that it was one of her tabloid photographs that caused his downfall, and that she must restore him to his former glory if she wants to regain a foothold in the world around her.

“‘Shadow Girl’ is fundamentally about our need for connection and seeing beyond our own experience,” said Myers. “It’s easy to get lost in a world where your sense of self is dependent on others.”

Emmanuel Manzanares is overseeing talent training and fight choreography, while stunts are coordinated by Tim Gallin. Producers are Hipzee’s Tara Sickmeier and Rob Baunoch III, Boundary Stone’s Mark Schacknies and Khris Baxter, and Wrangle Entertainment’s Robyn K. Bennett​. Executive producers are Myriad Pictures’ Kirk D’Amico, Kevin Forester, and Audrey Delaney, as well as Sixteen19’s Pete Conlin and Jonathan Hoffman.
