Sydney Sweeney‘s star continues to rise. In a year where she’s signed on for multiple interesting film projects, she’s now added another to the list. The Euphoria breakout star will play the lead in psychological horror film Immaculate, while will reunite her with director Michael Mohan, who she previously worked with on 2021 erotic thriller The Voyeurs.
Sweeney will play Cecilia, a woman of devout faith who is offered a fulfilling new role at an illustrious Italian convent. But her warm welcome to the picture-perfect Italian countryside is interrupted when it becomes clear to Cecilia that her new home harbors dark and horrifying secrets.
Andrew Lobel will write the script. Sweeney will also produce the film with Jonathan Davino for Fifty-Fifty Films and alongside The White Lotus executive producer David Bernad, who developed the project with Sweeney. Black Bear Pictures will finance the film and handle international sales.
In just the last few months, Sweeney has signed on to star in the Barbarella remake, an adaptation of dystopian thriller novel The Registration, Universal’s The Caretaker, and portray whistleblower Reality Winner in the adaptation of Tina Satter‘s play Is This A Room. That’s on top of in-production projects like superhero film Madame Web and thriller The National Anthem.
Clearly the industry sees her as a budding star. She also obviously has a rapport with Mohan, working with him on The Voyeurs – her first big film role after the success of Euphoria – but also on much-hyped but short-lived Netflix series Everything Sucks.
Expect to see Sweeney on many billboards and in many trailers over the next few years. Principal photography on Immaculate will commence in January 2023.
