Chloë Grace Moretz (‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’) is set to take the lead in the Max Landis-scripted WWII action horror ‘Shadow in the Cloud,’ with Chinese-New Zealand filmmaker Roseanne Liang (‘My Wedding and Other Secrets’) behind the camera.
Per Variety, the film sees playing Captain Maude Gardner, who “boards a B-17 Flying Fortress, clutching a black radio bag with top secret contents and orders authorizing her transport. As she puts up with jeers from the all-male crew, strange happenings begin to occur on the plane as the pilot is forced to deal with an oncoming Japanese ambush and an evil prowling within.”
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (‘Sinister’) and Fred Berger (‘La La Land’) from Automatik, along with Kelly McCormick (Atomic Blonde) and Tom Hern (The Dark Horse) of Four Knights Film are on board to produce. Automatik’s Sandra Yee Ling wil serve as executive producer.
