Highland Film Group announced today that Emma Roberts (We're the Millers, American Horror Story) and Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, Carriers) will star in the horror/thriller film February, which will be written and directed by Osgood Perkins, the son of legendary actor Anthony Perkins.
In February, beautiful and haunted Joan makes a bloody and determined pilgrimage across a frozen landscape toward a prestigious all girls prep school where Rose and Kat find themselves stranded after their parents mysteriously fail to retrieve them for winter break. As Joan gets closer, terrifying visions begin plaguing Kat while Rose watches in horror as she becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.
"We look forward to bringing Osgood's tantalizing story to life while keeping audiences riveted with suspense."
Highland Film Group's Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier added their own statement.
"Having these two brilliant young actresses as a part of the team will no doubt translate with our buyers and audiences worldwide."
February is produced by Unbroken Pictures' Adrienne Biddle and Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) and Rob Paris' Paris Film, Inc. (Everly). Highland Film Group will be handling international sales and will introduce the film to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
