Last month, Saban Films announced that they will be releasing the thriller In the Fire, starring Aquaman‘s Amber Heard, on Friday, October 13th – and the movie will be receiving theatrical, digital, and VOD releases all on the same date. With that date now just a few weeks away, a trailer for In the Fire has now arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above.
Directed by Conor Allyn, who also wrote the screenplay with Pascal Borno and Silvio Muraglia, In the Fire has the following synopsis: A doctor from New York travels to a remote plantation in the 1890s to care for a disturbed boy who seems to have inexplicable abilities. She begins treating the child, but in doing so ignites a war of science versus religion with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil and is the reason for all the village’s woes.
Filming on this project took place in both Guatemala and Italy. Heard was joined in the cast by Eduardo Noriega (Thesis), Lorenzo McGovern Zaini (The Good Witch of Christmas), newcomer Sophie Cannell, Luca Calvani (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), and Yari Gugliucci (Tomato Soup in Skid Row).
Monika Bacardi, Pascal Borno, Alain Gillissen, and Andrea Iervolino produced In the Fire, with Allyn serving as an executive producer alongside Harry Finkel, Danielle Maloni, and Andrea Zoso.
Allyn’s previous directing credits include Red and White II: Blood of Eagles, Red and White III: Hearts of Freedom, Java Heat, Zoe Gone, Pocket Listing, Abducted, Forsaken, ExPatriot, Overexposed, No Man’s Land, and Walk. Ride. Rodeo.
Speaking about the film before the SAG strike began, Heard said, “(In the Fire) is a meditation on the almost supernatural powers of love told through a strong-willed and independent woman at the turn of the 20th century. I feel honored to be part of this labor of love and to be the lead in Conor Allyn’s vision. I feel lucky to be surrounded by such an amazing cast. They’re as dedicated and magical as the characters they play.“
