Kate Bosworth & Tyler Hoechlin Negotiating To Star In MGM’s ‘The Domestics’
EXCLUSIVE: Kate Bosworth is in final negotiations to star in Mike P. Nelson’s The Domestics with Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl) negotiating to join her in the post-apocalyptic thriller. The film was written and will be directed by Nelson, who worked on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and directed several episodes of Studio Luma. Hollywood Gang is producing the picture.
The story takes place in a futuristic wasteland when a young couple travels through a harrowing, gang-ravaged countryside in an attempt to make it home. Gianni Nunnari and Shannon Gaulding are producing, and Adam Krentzman and Kurt Johnstad will be exec producers.
Bosworth is about to start filming Finding Steve McQueen opposite Travis Fimmel. Her second season of Art of More in which she stars opposite Dennis Quaid premieres this fall for Sony’s Crackle. She is represented by CAA and Management 360. Hoechlin, who also is in Fifty Shades Darker, is repped by UTA and Management 360.
The writer/director made a twelve episode web-based narrative series. Here's more on the synopsis.
Mike P. Nelson The Domestics About this grant Year 2014 Discipline Film and Video Grant Program Minnesota Film and Video Location Minnesota
MIKE P. NELSON, Robbinsdale, received support for The Domestics, a twelve episode web-based narrative series. On the verge of his wife losing her will to live, a Midwestern husband fights to maintain a domestic home life for her after the collapse of society. It is a story of love, violence, resilience, and Americana that captures the relationship of a husband and wife amidst desolation. Living in a world now ravaged by gangs, cannibals, psychotic survivalists, and cults, the couple is reminded of why they fell in love in the first place. When the husband is severely injured, his suburban housewife must abide by the rules of the newly abrasive world in which they live and do whatever it takes to protect her family and way of life. Episodes one and two of the series are already complete. The remaining ten episodes are yet to be accomplished, with each episode clocking in around 8-12 minutes in length. Nelson’s plan is to build an audience and following for the series on the popular website, Twitchfilm.com and eventually post the series on the internet.
The end of this month meaning September?! In that case, I don't know how Kate could do Finding Steve McQueen and The Domestics. I'm sure they're trying to figure out scheduling. Hope it gets worked out.
