Starting with her first feature, Boxing Helena, Jennifer Lynch has demonstrated the same unflinching attitude towards subject matter that would make most folks run as her father, the legendary David Lynch. So expect more of the same from her next film, the serial killer thriller A Fall from Grace. More after the jump.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lynch "will next helm the thriller A Fall From Grace, about a homicide detective tracking a serial killer along the Mississippi River who burns his victims. She wrote the screenplay with Eric Wilkinson, who will produce with Apothecary Films partner David Michaels. Filming will take place in the St. Louis area."
"'It has been an incredible process, writing this piece,' says Lynch. 'I'm not sure what demons of my own I may have been exorcising, or if I simply felt more challenged by such a darkness. But I truly feel something intense and different was at work here.'"
"Wilkinson got the inspiration for the story when he videotaped his walk across the abandoned Old Chain of Rocks Bridge over the Mississippi near St. Louis, only to find out later that two young women were murdered there in 1991."
Lynch "just wrapped Rabbit for an Anchor Bay Films and Myriad Pictures release later in 2012."
