Kind of feel that Tilman Singer‘s sophomore feature has been dangling like a carrot in front of us since they teased the first film still (back in mid ’22) of fearful Hunter Schafer. The delay on Cuckoo probably has more to do with the fact that is dives into a animated sequences to go along with the 35mm live action it was shot in. Also featuring Jan Bluthardt, Jessica Henwick, Dan Stevens, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey and Marton Csokas, Cuckoo could be featured in Park City and then the Berlinale where Singer’s debut feature Luz (2018) premiered.
Gist: Chased by a mysterious woman, 17-year-old Gretchen, who just moved with her family to an alpine resort after her mother’s death, must uncover a conspiracy to save herself and her sister.
Production Co./Producers: Thor Bradwell, Ben Rimmer, Fiction Park’s Markus Halberschmidt and Maria Tsigka, Waypoint’s Ken Kao and Josh Rosenbaum.
