Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight and Red Riding Hood, has begun shooting her new film, Plush, in Los Angeles. Filming just got underway on the erotic thriller which Hardwicke is helming and Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity franchise) is producing.
The official synopsis: Plush is a story of rising rock star Hayley (Browning) who, after losing her band mate and brother to a drug overdose, finds herself in a downward spiral. The second album from her band Plush is received as a critical and commercial disaster, but she finds new hope and friendship in Enzo ( Samuel), the replacement guitarist who inspires her to reach new creative heights. However, their collaboration soon crosses the line sexually and Hayley, not wanting to betray her husband (Gigandet), retreats from Enzo's advances. As Hayley slowly discovers Enzo's dark and troubled history, she realizes she may have let a madman into her home and family and that her mistake may cost the lives of people closest to her.
Announcing the start of production, IM Global CEO Stuart Ford stated: "We have a director and a producer with more than a billion dollars of box office under their belts and who have launched two of the most successful franchises of all time. Ally those credentials to a brilliantly twisting, erotic screenplay and a vibrant young cast and we couldn't be more excited about the film's prospects."
