The helmers previously worked together on critically acclaimed movie “The Fits,” which launched at Venice in 2015. It went on to play at Sundance where, in its review, Variety said that “Rose Holmer’s promising debut feature crafts a meticulous mood of psychological isolation and beguiling mystery.”
The movie was nominated at the 2016 Gotham Awards and as Best First Feature at the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards.
Their new project will be the first time that Davis and Holmer, who are based in New York, have joined forces as a directing duo.
There are few plot details as yet of the Gothic psychological drama. U.K.-based O’Reilly originated the new and as-yet-unnamed project through her Sixty Six Pictures banner. The film will be set in Ireland and was developed with the backing of Screen Ireland. The script comes from debut screenwriter and NFTS graduate Shane Crowley.
