After General Zod comes from the skies to pummel Superman, the actor that will play the villain will have his next project lined up for him: “The Harvest.”
What happens when the only person you live for is taken away and at what lengths will people go to retrieve that someone which they have lost? These are the types of question’s which Michael Shannon new film will ask. Shannon plays Richard Young, a retired nurse, who has become dependent on his wife, and has suddenly lost his son.
Their child Andy, played by Charlie Tahan, lives in a secluded social bubble where he is cared for by his parents, receiving all his educational and medical needs from them. His rigid lifestyle will all come to a head when he meets his new neighbor Maryann, played by Natasha Calis. Along with Shannon, will be Oscar-nominee Samantha Morton whose overprotective mother will be at the nexus of the drama.
Directing will be John McNaughton whose best known for the disturbing and visceral serial killer film, “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” as well as the crime-thriller “Wild Things.”
“Having a genre master like John McNaughton directing two of the most gifted and bold actors of our time (Samantha and Michael) could not be more of a perfect combination for our film,” says producer Kim Jose. “After 5 years of trying to get this project off the ground, we feel very fortunate to have this creative team in place.”
Shooting will take place in the New York area through January 2013, and will probably be released later on next year.
