EXCLUSIVE: Annet Mahendru, who is best known for her role on FX’s The Americans, has been tapped to star in Manifest West, an indie film from writing/directing duo Joe Dietsch and Louie Gibson.

The drama, which hails from Wolf Haus Productions, follows a family that moves off the grid into untamed North American wilderness where they inevitably come apart at the seams. Mahendru, who next co-stars in AMC’s upcoming spinoff, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, will play Alice Hayes, the family’s loving but ultimately mentally unstable mother.

Production is slated for early summer 2020 in Southern California,
