Jennifer Lynch Having A Fall From Grace
She'll direct the thriller

Jennifer Lynch Having A Fall From Grace

Though she’s got a few films under her belt, Jennifer Lynch hasn’t exactly enjoyed the easiest time of it in her career. Boxing Helena didn't exactly set the world alight, and her last film, snake-woman horror Hisss, vanished off the radar with little success and barely got released over here. While she has the thriller Rabbit awaiting release, she’s ploughing on to the next, setting up A Fall From Grace.

The script, which Lynch wrote with Eric Wilkinson, follows a detective tracking a serial killer who burns his victims along the Mississippi River. It’s partly based on Wilkinson’s trip to the abandoned Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, which stretches over the river near St Louis, and which was the site for a grisly double murder.

“It has been an incredible process, writing this piece,” says Lynch in a statement, which got sucked into the Hollywood Reporter’s news hoover. “I’m not sure what demons of my own I may have been exorcising, or if I simply felt more challenged by such a darkness. But I truly feel something intense and different was at work here.”

Wilkinson also plans to produce the film and has set up backing via Apothecary Films. They’ll all be hoping this one works out a little more successfully than, say, Boxing Helena.
