The art of horror.

Self-Portrait–a new psychological horror feature–has its leads in place for a production start later this year, according to a report on Deadline.

Zoe Kravitz (The Batman) and Thomasin McKenzie (Last Night in Soho) will work with director Mona Fastvold (The World to Come), who wrote the screenplay with Brady Corbet.

The film–based on Rachel Lyon’s debut novel Self-Portrait With Boy–follows “grieving photographer Lu Rile (McKenzie) as she moves to a rundown artists’ warehouse in 1990s Brooklyn, where she befriends Katherine (Kravitz), an accomplished painter who lives downstairs,” according to the synopsis.

And, when Katherine suffers a tragic loss, Lu “unknowingly captures the incident in one of her self-portraits–generating a sublime but horrifying image. The women soon find themselves haunted by a demonic force hellbent on shaking their realities.”
