Fernanda Urrejola is heading into the woods…
The 40-year-old Chilean actress will star opposite J.K. Simmons and Allen Leech in the thriller The Woods.
Isabelle Anaya is also starring in the project.
Michelle Schumacher will direct from a screenplay she co-wrote with Carolyn Carpenter.
The film centers on a teenage girl suffering from anxiety due to a tragic event from her past who finds herself hunted through the woods by a sociopath on a murderous rampage.
“I didn’t want to play any truly scary bad guys when our kids were young, partly because of how it might affect them if they saw the film and also because I didn’t want to bring that energy home with me after an intense day on the set,” Simmons said. But now that his two children are in college, Simmons has freed himself to unleash his inner villain.
Urrejola can currently be seen in Warner Bros.’ Cry Macho, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood.
