As you’ve probably noticed while visiting this site over the past week, the Cannes Film Festival has seen dozens and dozens of new projects announced. For instance, Michael Shannon has a couple of new films gearing up.
First up, the actor will join Rebecca Hall and Ben Foster in “State Like Sleep.” Meredith Danluck is writing and directing the movie that will follow Katherine, who struggles to find the truth about her celebrity husband’s double life after he commits suicide. Pretty good cast and a pretty good premise for this project, which starts shooting in July.
After that, Shannon will join Matthias Schweighöfer and Noomi Rapace in “The Price.” Siofra Campbell is directing this thriller that centers on a frantic mother of a kidnapped child who realizes that her ex-partner is the instigator and must deal with the fallout when he is double-crossed. Cameras roll in September.
So, suicide and kidnapping….Shannon is certainly keeping things intense with his next couple of pictures, and we’ll keep a lookout in 2016 for them.
