2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Chadd Harbold’s Private Property

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Chadd Harbold’s Private Property

A filmmaker who goes we back with Sundance when his short film (Asshole) premiered there at 2009, filmmaker Chadd Harbold flirted with the fest when his sophomore film How to Be a Man (2013) was invited to the festival’s run-off fest in Los Angeles (Sundance NEXT Weekend). For his fourth feature film, Harbold reteamed with Shiloh Fernandez (Long Nights Short Mornings), and landed Ashley Benson, Logan Miller, Frank Whaley and Jay Pharoah for the set in Los Angeles remake of the 1960 noir film of the same title (read our review).

Gist: Kathryn (Ashley Benson) is a struggling actress and unfulfilled housewife who becomes involved with her new gardener Ben (Shiloh Fernandez). As he gives her the attention and sensitivity she craves, they start to fall for each other. But, in true noir fashion, Ben is not all that he seems.

Production Co./Producers: Lucas Jarach, Ryan R. Johnson, Luke Daniels, Shaun Sanghani, and Shiloh Fernandez.

Prediction: NEXT.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBA (domestic, international).
