Lazareth, an “edge of your seat” thriller starring Ashley Judd and written/directed by Alec Tibaldi, has wrapped filming
Vertical, TPC, and SSS Entertainment have announced that their thriller Lazareth has made it through production in Oregon and has officially wrapped filming. Vertical holds the North American distribution rights to the film, which stars Ashley Judd (Heat). The project will be presented to potential international distributors at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.
Judd is joined in the cast by Katie Douglas (Ginny & Georgia), Sarah Pidgeon (Tiny Beautiful Things), Asher Angel (Shazam!), and newcomer Edward Balaban. Written and directed by Alec Tibaldi (Spiral Farm), the film tells the story of Lee (Judd) who protects her orphaned nieces, Imogen (Douglas) and Maeve (Pidgeon) from a self-destructing world and raises them in isolation until an outsider (Angel) arrives threatening their peaceful existence.
Lazareth is being produced Robert Ogden Barnum and Eric Binns of The Barnum Picture Company. Vertical’s Peter Jarowey, Rich Goldberg, and Kristin Harris serve as executive producers alongside TPC’s David Gendron, Ali Jazayeri, Viviana Zarragoitia, and John Bails, and The Syndicate’s Michael Lurie and Jeffrey Giles. Vertical’s Sammi Farber is the associate producer.
Barnum had this to say about the project: “We are thrilled to be partnered with Vertical again on a fantastic production. With Alec’s great script, direction and experience in this genre, coupled with the incomparable Ashley Judd leading the cast to bring his words to life, we fully expect audiences to embrace the film when it is released to market.“
Jarowey added: “Rob Barnum came to us early with Alec’s impressive script and we jumped at the chance to work together again on such an edge-of-your-seat thriller. We are incredibly proud of the progress of our partnerships thus far in creating a streamlined process for fully financing projects.“
I have been a fan of Ashley Judd’s acting work since the mid-’90s, thanks to movies like Heat, Normal Life, Kiss the Girls, and a deleted scene from Natural Born Killers. So I’m totally on board to watch her in a new “edge of your seat” thriller, and Lazareth sounds interesting to me.
