Following genre turns in the likes of The Gift, The Reaping, and The Resident, Hilary Swank is returning to horror for an upcoming film named I Am Mother. We’ve known about the existence of the project for a little while, but specific details have not been disclosed until now. the folks at the bloody awesome website Bloody Disgusting have some more details on the plot and we have some first-look imagery.
“I Am Mother portrays a teenage girl (Clara Rugaard) raised underground by a robot mother designed to repopulate the earth following an extinction event. Their unique bond is threatened when a blood-drenched stranger, played by Swank, is taken in by the teen, only to find herself at odds with her gear-and-piston parent. Overnight, the stranger casts doubt on Mother’s claims about the outside world and begins to unravel the fabric of their insular family. Unsure whom to trust, the girl begins to probe into Mother’s dubious nature and uncovers the truth of her greater mission.”
The movie comes from first-time feature director Gran Sputore and the pen of screenwriter Michael Lloyd Green. It starts to roll out into cinemas, starting with Australia, in early October. Here are the first look images.
