Felipe Mucci, who co-wrote the script, is set to direct.
There were some big announcements made today about the new psychological thriller movie Detained from Kinogo Pictures — especially with regard to casting and directing decisions. Amazon Original programming alumni Abbie Cornish (Jack Ryan) and Laz Alonso (The Boys) will be co-starring in the upcoming film. They’ll be under the creative direction of Felipe Mucci (The Two Deaths of Henry Baker), who co-wrote the script alongside Jeremy Palmer.
So what’s Detained going to be about? The short answer is “police detention,” but it’s actually a lot more than that. The story starts with Cornish’s character waking up in the interrogation room of a police station with absolutely no memory whatsoever of what happened the night before. The cops in the station proceed to make some wild allegations as they interrogate her. There’s also an eerie vibe that there’s something “not quite right” about this particular police station or the cops who are running it.
In addition to Cornish and Alonso, Detained will star Justin H. Min (The Umbrella Academy), John Patrick Amedori (Dear White People), Silas Weir Mitchell (Grimm), Moon Bloodgood (Falling Skies), Josefine Lindegaard, and Breeda Wool (Mr. Mercedes).
Detained is produced by Ryan Scaringe, co-produced by Amy Lippens, and executive produced by Monica Sufar, who is also handling sales for the film. Cornish and Alonso will also serve as executive producers.
Kinogo Pictures is an independent production company that has already produced three feature films: the 2020 sci-fi comedy Useless Humans; mystery/thriller The Djinn; and The Boy Next Door. The Los Angeles-based Kinogo prides itself on inclusivity both on set and on staff. Detained is going to be their fourth feature, with (hopefully) many more to come.
Stay tuned to Collider for further announcements on Detained‘s production progress and release dates.
