EXCLUSIVE: Here is your first trailer for horror-thriller Shut in, the first “Original” film from conservative media company The Daily Wire.
The thriller Black List and BloodList, directed by xXx: The Return of Alex Cage and Disturbance director DJ Caruso, stars actress and singer Rainey Qualley (Love in the days of Corona), sister of Once upon a time in hollywood actress Margaret Qualley.
As we announced yesterday, the feature film will mark the return of controversial and cult actor-director Vincent Gallo. We can also reveal today that Voltage Pictures is handling the international sales of the project.
Pic centers on a young single mother (Qualley) who is held captive with her two children by an abusive ex as she prepares their escape before it’s too late. Caruso shot the film around Nashville and Watertown, Tennessee.
The producers are Dallas Sonnier (Bone tomahawk) and Amanda Presmyk (Execute Hide Combat) from Bonfire Legend, who acquired the film’s screenplay in 2018 from screenwriter Melanie Toast.
Shut in first gained attention as the vaunted 2019 Blacklist script, also topping the Bloodlist in the same year. The film was originally set at New Line with Jason Bateman on board to direct. After a period of stasis, the option expired and Sonnier took over to The daily thread, marking their third collaboration.
Pic is produced by Daily thread co-founders Ben Shapiro, Jeremy Boreing and Caleb Robinson, and will be available in the United States exclusively to site members from early 2022, with plans for an international launch thereafter.
