Olivia Wilde ("Tron: Legacy"), Hailee Steinfeld ("True Grit"), and Nicole Beharie ("Shame") are teaming to star in Daniel Barber's period thriller "The Keeping Room" at Wind Dancer Films, Gilbert Films and Anonymous Content.
Julia Hart penned the script which follows two Southern sisters (Wilde, Steinfeld) and an African American slave (Beharie) left alone in the dying days of the Civil War.
The trio are soon forced to defend their home from the onslaught of a band of soldiers who have broken off from the fast approaching Union Army.
Jordan Horowitz, Matt Williams, David McFadzean, Judd Payne and Dete Meserve will produce. Shooting kicks off in March in North Carolina.
