Filipino director Yam Laranas will direct Hollywood stars Adam Brody and Amanda Crew in an upcoming movie.
Titled The Wanting, this psychological thriller already started shooting in Toronto, Canada last September 26. This was reported by Deadline.com.
Aside from directing the film, Yam Laranas co-wrote the short story with Gin de Mesa that forms the basis of this movie. Direk Yam is the director behind the Pinoy film Sigaw (2004) that got a Hollywood remake titled The Echo (2008).
The Wanting is described by Variety.com as a film that revolves around "an all-American couple whose dream of starting a family is shattered after they move into the perfect New England neighborhood. Once settled, they soon after descend into the depths of terror as they struggle to survive a genuine threat from a dark presence that appears to want to end their very lives."
Adam is best known for portraying Seth Cohen in the American TV series The O.C. while Amanda played Tess Carroll in the 2010 movie Charlie St. Cloud.
