Sam H. Freeman and Ng Choon Ping directed the film, which is based on their BAFTA-nominated short film of the same name from 2021. In the film, Stewart-Jarrett plays a drag queen whose life is destroyed by a homophobic attack and then plots revenge on one of the perpetrators (MacKay) when he spots him in a gay sauna.
The film also stars Anaïs Demoustier, Tom Mercier and Béatrice Dalle. Agile’s Myles Payne and Ritzenberg will produce the film, which is co-financed by BBC Film and Anton, while Hayley Williams will co-produce. Executive producers are Eva Yates for BBC Film, Marnie Podos, and Anton’s Sebastien Raybaud and Cecile Gaget.
In a statement, Freeman and Ping said, “We are huge fans of thrillers, but we felt that the predominantly hyper-masculine genre often excludes the queer perspective.” added, “By putting a gay protagonist at the heart of a thriller, we aim to invert expectations, and push stories from the margin, and ourselves as queer artists, into the mainstream.“
