The first photo is out from “The Book of Henry,” the Colin Trevorrow-directed indie film starring young actors Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”) and Jacob Tremblay (“Room”).
The story follows two brothers who collaborate on a scheme to rescue their neighbour (Maddie Ziegler) from abuse at the hands of her police commissioner dad. Naomi Watts co-stars as the boys’ single mother.
Talking with Empire Online and his aim with the film: “I wanted to do something that scared the hell out of me… An acoustic movie with intense emotion. The challenge was to give an audience the same tension and thrills they get from a blockbuster, but rely solely on story and character to do it.”
“The Book of Henry” is currently slated to open later this year.
