Mckenna Grace Set to Star in New Psychological Thriller STRAIGHT LIES — GeekTyrant

Mckenna Grace (Ghostbusters, Annabelle Comes Homes) is set to star in and executive produce a new psychological thriller called Straight Lies. Alex Kalymnios set to direct with Mandalay Pictures to produce.

The film is set in 1990 surrounding the hysteria of the war on drugs. The story centers on “a teen girl falsely accused of drug use, who is held against her will and must escape a cult-like drug rehab that is backed by the US Government, while her covert CIA agent father becomes so lost in political influence that he is unaware of the danger his daughter is in.”

The movie was written by Ren Trella and it was inspired by true events from her life as a teenager, so that sounds terrifying.

Grace said in a statement: “I am so honored to bring this compelling story to the screen. After speaking with our amazing writer Ren and hearing her true story of what she endured and based the script, I knew this was going to be a heartbreaking, but necessary project to make.”

Kalymnios added: “I am so honored to be directing this haunting and compelling story inspired by true events and I’m thrilled Mckenna Grace will be leading us through this shocking and emotional nightmare of one girl’s fight to survive STRAIGHT.”

Production is slated to begin this summer in North Carolina.
