John McNaughton Reaps “The Harvest”

“Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and “Wild Things” director John McNaughton is returning to film, after more than a decade’s absence, by signing on to helm the sub-$10 million psychological horror thriller “The Harvest.”

Michael Shannon and Samantha Morton play a married couple with medical backgrounds. Their sick son (Charlie Tahan) lives in a controlled and secluded environment, until a young girl (Natasha Calis) moves in next door and gives him hope of a better life.

As the teens grow closer, the tight-knit world his over-protective mother has created begins to unravel. Stephen Lancellotti penned the script, while Leslie Lyles and Meadow Williams also star.

Williams, Kim Jose, David Robinson and Steven A. Jones are producing and shooting is currently under way in New York.
