Michael Shannon and Samantha Morton To Star in ‘The Harvest’

Academy Award Nominees Samantha Morton and Michael Shannon will star in The Harvest, a psychological thriller that questions the lengths parents will go to in order to save their only child.

Charlie Tahan (“Charlie St. Cloud”), Natasha Calis (“The Possession”), Leslie Lyles (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) and Meadow Williams (“Sebastian”) will co-star.

Billy Hopkins cast the film and that will be directed by John McNaughton. The film is shooting in Palisades and Brooklyn, New York through January 2013.

Morton and Shannon portray Katherine and Richard Young, a successful heart surgeon and over-protective mother, and her co-dependent husband who has retired from his career as a nurse to care for their sick son Andy (Charlie Tahan). Andy’s healthcare is handled in-house, and all of his medical issues taken care of by his mother and father with the help of a pharmaceutical representative, Sandra (Meadow Williams), who supplies them with whatever they need, no questions asked.  Home schooled, Andy lives in a controlled, secluded world, until an innocent 13-year-old neighbor, Maryann (Natasha Calis) moves in with her grandmother (Leslie Lyles) and gives Andy hopes of a better life. As the teens grow closer, the tight knit world Katherine has created begins to unravel.

Academy Award nominated actress Samantha Morton (“In America,” “Sweet and Lowdown”) will next be seen in Spike Jonze’s “Her” and Steven Bernstein’s “Minority Report.” Morton is represented by Conway van Gelder Grant and Principato Young Entertainment.

Charlie Tahan will next be seen in the Guillaume Canet film “Blood Ties” with Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard and the upcoming Woody Allen project with Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin. Previous films include “Charlie St. Cloud” and “I Am Legend.”  Tahan is represented by Abrams Artists Agency.
