Fresh off her success in 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, rising star Madison Iseman will headline a new psychological thriller with the very giallo-esque title I Saw a Man With Yellow Eyes.

Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick Jr. will also star in the film, which will begin shooting this week in Tampa and St. Petersburg under the direction of Castille Landon, who also wrote the script.

Iseman plays a teenage girl named Rain Burroughs who suffers from schizophrenia and is experiencing vivid and terrifying hallucinations as she begins to suspect her neighbor has kidnapped a child. Her own parents, who have secrets of their own, are skeptical, while the only person who believes her is a boy named Caleb — and he may not even exist.

Landon, whose previous feature directing credits include Albion: The Enchanted Stallion and Apple of my Eye, said, “Having this phenomenal cast and crew come together to bring to the screen a film that is simultaneously entertaining and thought provoking, with the aim of opening a much needed dialogue about mental health, is a dream come true for me as a director and writer.”

Iseman had a breakthrough role in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and is slated to appear in the sequel, due later this year. She also starred in last fall’s Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween and will be seen this June in Annabelle Comes Home, the third entry in the successful Conjuring spin-off series.

Heigl is best known for her starring roles in the feature films The Ugly Truth, 27 Dresses and Knocked Up, as well as her work on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and the USA series Suits, while Connick has a slew of film and TV credits to his name, including Dolphin Tale, Bug, Copycat, Will & Grace and many others.
