Director Ti West has got quite a reputation for himself in horror circles for the likes of The Innkeepers and The House Of The Devil, but he’s going slightly sci-fi for his next effort, The Side Effect. Now Deadline reports that Actress Liv Tyler has signed on to star in the movie.
The film centres on Tyler’s character, Catherine Rigby, who spends several months alone in space, to test a pharmaceutical company’s new drugs. When the woman somehow becomes pregnant, paranoia sets in as Catherine begins to think she may be stranded in space.
Here’s what Ti West had to say about bringing Liv Tyler on board, “Although it is still somewhat of a horror film, it is much more psychological than any of my previous efforts. It was essential that I find an actress who could portray a wide range of emotion and always earn the audience’s sympathy no matter what the situation. As soon as I sat down with Liv, it was obvious she was the one.”
It isn’t known when the film will shoot.
