The “things” the Soprano family did, as well as certain aspects of show business, have traditionally been recession proof since time immemorial. But there is another group that’s never been hit by a bad economy and it’s the top one percent, and now a group of them are going trophy-hunting for Tony Soprano’s little girl. The upcoming thriller Hunting Season will star Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos, Entourage), along with Deanna Russo (Being Human, Knight Rider). Look At Me Films announced it also cast Bruce Davison, Sean Maher and Paula Garces.
Jamie-Lynn will play Abby, a street-smart social worker. Russo will play her “near-desperately single” roommate Piper. Sean Maher (Firefly, Much Ado About Nothing), a frequent Joss Whedon collaborator, will play Piper’s new boyfriend, James.
“When their romantic weekend together goes awry, Abby must track her to his family’s hunting lodge before it’s too late,” reads the official synopsis. “The real danger in this film isn’t being chased in the woods by a psycho in a mask—it’s the 1%.”
Bruce Davison (X-Men, Insidious) will play the hunter who’s grown tired of big game. He also happens to be James’ father. Paula Garces (Harold and Kumar) also joins the cast alongside frequent Johnston collaborator Hilary Barraford (Go For Sisters, United States Of Tara), who also serves as executive producer.
Hunting Season is the third in a series of films that explore the unique fears “women face in today’s society” from genre director Megan Freels Johnston (Rebound). Johnston’s previous film The Ice Cream Truck, a horror comedy about a bored housewife, was released last year to critical acclaim. Her films are departs from typical indie horror which often looks only at the part (or parts) rather than the whole woman.
Hunting Season is set to shoot this fall.
