Tatiana Maslany and Sebastian Stan are in negotiations to join Nicole Kidman in Destroyer.
The modern Los Angeles crime thriller will be directed by Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Girlfight) and fully financed by upstart 30WEST. Automatik’s Fred Berger (La La Land) is producing alongside Hay and Manfredi, who also wrote and produced Kusama’s The Invitation.
Based on an original screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (The Invitation, Ride Along), the story centers on LAPD detective Erin Bell (Kidman), who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a cult-like gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.
L.A. goth boy Leo at Helter Skelter, L.A., 1992. From the late ‘80s to early ‘90s the club was at several different locations, and always boasted the biggest and best clientele of goths, rivet heads and dark wavers. It was run by Michael Stewart and Bruce Perdew, the latter of whom created the magnificent skeletal and cadaver artwork for the club’s fliers, advertisements and murals. This photo was published in an article about Helter Skelter in Propaganda Magazine Issue No. 19/Fall 1992. Photo by Fred H. Berger, 1992. (Posted June 20 ’18)
