Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Timothée Chalamet (Homeland, Interstellar), Grant Bowler (True Blood, Defiance), and Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight, True Detective) will star in One & Two, the next feature from director Andrew Droz Palermo. Palermo, a DP whose credits include You’re Next, V/H/S, and Hannah Fidell’s A Teacher, made his helming debut with co-director Tracy Droz Tragos on Rich Hill, the 2014 documentary about youngsters growing up in an impoverished Midwestern town that won Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize. One & Two follows a family of four who live peacefully in purposeful isolation in a mysterious farmhouse, where siblings Zac and Eva begin to explore unusual abilities and dark family secrets when their mother falls ill. Palermo co-wrote the film with Neima Shahdadi and will begin filming soon in North Carolina. Kim Sherman is producing with Bow + Arrow Entertainment’s Matthew Perniciaro and Michael Sherman. Bow + Arrow and Protagonist Pictures are executive producers. Sundance Institute Creative Producing Labs is backing the project, while WME and Protagonist are repping sales.
