Bad Bloom is said to be a horror fairytale film. The story revolves around a family that is living in isolation on a remote island to escape from an unknown creature.
“Their tightly-guarded reality begins to unravel when one of the children learns the monster they feared is not the monster they envisioned,” writes The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is being co-produced by Jon Rubinstein and Galt Niederhoffer for the Authentic Management banner, while Renn Hawkey will produce it under the banner of Ruminant Films.
Farmiga and McGuire previously collaborated on the project Tabloid Dreams, a surrealist comedy series, that was being developed by Bron Studios.
Farmiga is best known as paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in the hit supernatural horror film franchise The Conjuring. She has also acted in other successful horror films such as the 2009 psychological thriller Orphan and the television series Bates Motel.
Farmiga is currently shooting for Marvel’s Disney+ series Hawkeye, alongside Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld. She will also be appearing in the upcoming mystery thriller The Salamander Lives, which will be directed by Ant Timpson. Apart from this, she is also starring in The Many Saints of Newark, which is the prequel to the critically acclaimed TV show The Sopranos.
