His past history with Sundance, he wrote and directed the short film Knife Point (2009) and soon after he would go to the labs with The Storm King but that has yet to pan out. In September of 2016, it was announced would make this his next project, but production didn’t set sail until May of 2018 when Haley Bennett toplined the cast alongside Austin Stowell, Elizabeth Marvel, David Rasche and Denis O’Hare.
