Amy Smart (Stargirl, Just Friends, Crank), Matt Davis (Legally Blonde, “The Vampire Diaries,” Blue Crush), Ne-Yo (Battle Los Angeles, Stomp the Yard), Billy Zane (Titanic, The Phantom) and Greer Grammer (Deadly Illusions) are set to star in writer-director Anna Elizabeth JamesBlunt, Voltage Pictures President, and COO Jonathan Deckterannounced today.


In this mystery thriller, “a single mother (Smart) wakes up to find herself hogtied and held captive at her country vacation rental by an unknown assailant. In a race against time, she must piece together clues from the previous guests to find out who assaulted her, and hopefully survive the ordeal.”


James produces under her Kiss and Tale Productions banner alongside Richard Switzer, Julie Gause, Paul Luba and Chad Verdi Jr. Executive producers are Larry Galluzzo and Tim Bien.


James’ previous film, the suspenseful thriller, Deadly Illusions, was number one worldwide for eight days upon release on Netflix in 2021. Voltage also represented rights on the runaway success.


“Deadly Illusions deservedly earned cult status, becoming one of the biggest streaming hits of 2021, so we’re thrilled to be back in business with the very talented Anna,” said Deckter. “She’s written another tense and taut thriller with twists and turns that are sure to satisfy her growing fan base.”


“I love when a female lead is the detective of her own story,” said James. “It’s a captivating playground to be in and one I think is rarely tapped into, especially from the female gaze. Amy and the rest of our cast delivered a performance beyond my wildest imagination, and I am thrilled with what we will be sharing with our audience — a classic “who-dun-it with mind bending elements and, what I’d like to think, is a progressive and pulpy take on the whole post-pandemic, app living world.”
