Catherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts, Perry Mason, Babylon) is supposed to play the main role Sean Penn and Ty Sheridan in the upcoming drama thriller Black flies.
The film is based on the novel by Shannon Burke, and the story follows “the paramedics who save our lives — and the toll it takes on them.” It’s an immersive look at life on the road and a paramedic’s struggle to sustain his desire to help, despite his growing fear that nothing he can do will do.”
It is the story of lives “at stake and the decisions of two men caught in the middle. Ollie Cross (Sheridan) is ready to do good. In preparation for his dream of going to medical school, he takes to the streets in an ambulance with Rutkovsky (Penn), a gray-haired veteran and one of New York’s top medics.”
Producer Warren Goz said in a statement: “We are extremely excited to have Katherine on board Black flies. Black flies is an authentic story about how being a first responder impacts her personal life. We’ve assembled a cast of some of the best actors in the world to portray this important story. Katherine’s incredible ability to play the most authentic roles makes her the perfect cast Black flies.”
Jean-Stephane Sauvaire directs the film Ryan King and Ben Mack Brown writing the screenplay. The movie will be shot in New York City and it sounds like it’s going to be a great movie!
