Saban Films has announced that it has acquired the distribution rights to Voltage Pictures’ true-crime psychological thriller The Haunting of Sharon Tate, which will see Hilary Duff (The Perfect Man) taking on the role of the murdered actress.
The film follows actress Sharon Tate (Duff) in the weeks leading up to her and her unborn child’s murder as she is plagued by visions of her impending death. Daniel Farrands (Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, The Haunting in Connecticut) wrote, directed and produced the film, which also stars Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls) and Lydia Hearst (Between Worlds).
“The Tate Murders remain a horrifying cultural fascination, even nearly 50 years after they occurred,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. “Hilary is mesmerizing as Sharon Tate; this is a brutal and unsettling story.”
