Things get weird in Corey Deshon’s debut feature Daughter, a new thriller being introduced to buyers at Cannes by Yellow Veil Pictures, reports Deadline.
Casper Van Dien, Elyse Dinh, Ian Alexander and Vivien Ngô star in the pic about a young woman inducted into a bizarre family as their new surrogate daughter.
Van Dien (Starship Troopers) plays Father, Dinh (HBO’s “Watchmen”) is Mother. Alexander (“The Last of Us Part II”, “Star Trek: Discovery”, “The OA”) plays Brother and Ngô (“Queen Sugar”) marks her first feature lead turn as the titular Daughter.
Adds the site: “Described as a collaborative effort by Deshon and Ngô to challenge the confines of what creators of color are expected to produce within the limits of stereotypical genres and narrative arcs, Daughter features a diverse cast made up predominantly of Vietnamese American actors, and was filmed with an overall cast and crew consisting of 60% women and 80% people of color.”
Daughter is produced by Deshon for Thirteenth Floor Pictures, Ngô, Tracy Chitupatham, and Jes Vu; and executive produced by Sharunya Varriale, Ron Bradley, Matt Bradley, Daniel Goroshko, Laurent Fumeron and Rodolphe Sanzé from OneWorld Entertainment.
