Master Gardener, a crime thriller directed by Paul Schrader from his original script, will star Joel Edgerton and Sigourney Weaver. It follows a careful gardener (Edgerton) who is dedicated to caring for the grounds of a magnificent house while catering to his boss, a rich dowager (Weaver). When she insists that he take care of her misbehaving and disturbed great-niece, he is forced to confront terrible truths from a violent past.
HanWay is reconnecting with the filmmaker after The Card Counter, which will be released this month by Focus Features, is sold out worldwide. Master Gardener is being co-marketed in North America by the firm and Schrader’s manager, David Gonzales.
With David Gonzales, Amanda Crittenden of Kojo Studios and Scott LaStaiti are producing. Linda Ujuk and Dale Roberts of KOJO Studios will executive produce with Luisa Law. Principal filming is set to begin in the southern United States early next year.
“It was one of my male protagonists when the concept first started, but then these two women entered and it became something more complicated and unique,” Schrader told Deadline.
HanWay Films MD Gabrielle Stewart said, “Paul Schrader is at the top of his game, and HanWay is thrilled to be working with one of the film’s best writer-directors again.” “Master Gardener is a natural follow-up to the great picture The Card Counter, which will debut at the Venice Film Festival tomorrow. Character-driven, seductive, and unexpected, with all the intrigue one would expect from a Schrader film.”
