The Orchard announced the company has acquired worldwide rights to indie-suspense drama, Still, starring Lydia Wilson (Star Trek: Beyond), Nick Blood (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale) out of the SCAD Savannah Film Festival. The film will be released in North America on Jan. 8 across digital and On Demand platforms.
The film follows a young hiker (Madeline Brewer) who stumbles onto an isolated farm after losing her way on the Appalachian Trail. She is taken in and cared for by a strange couple (Lydia Wilson and Nick Blood) desperate to protect a secret deep in the mountains.
Still is the narrative feature directorial debut of Takashi Doscher, an Atlanta native, who previously directed the ESPN documentary A Fighting Chance. Doscher’s next feature film, Only, is a sci-fi love story, starring Freida Pinto and Tony-award winner Leslie Odom, Jr.
