Ty Simpkins (Insidious, Iron Man 3, Jurassic World) has been cast in the lead role, Eric Daniels, in the upcoming social horror film, WHERE’S ROSE. For the first time in his career, he will produce as well. The film will also star Anneliese Judge (Sweet Magnolias) in a supporting role.
The film centers on the Daniels, a white middle-class family. Eric (Ty Simpkins) is the college-bound, straight A’s, football team star who everyone in town looks up to. His little sister Rose is a playful girl with a big imagination who one day goes missing. Thankfully she is found fairly quickly. However, Eric seems to be the only one to suspect his sister is not who she says she is. He investigates and begins to unravel what kind of monster Rose has become.
From writer/director John Mathis, “With this film, we are able to tell an exciting, terrifying, and truly unique story while also exploring important, relevant social themes in regards to masculinity and privilege.”
The film is set to be shot in Winston-Salem, NC in August 2020, home of the crew’s alma mater, UNCSA.
