Katherine Heigl, Harry Connick Jr. Join I Saw a Man With Yellow Eyes

-

Katherine Heigl (One for the Money), Harry Connick Jr. (Will & Grace) and Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) have joined the cast of the upcoming film I Saw a Man With Yellow Eyes, according to Deadline. The film begins shooting in Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida this week. It is directed by Castille Lando, who also wrote the thriller.

The story for I Saw a Man With Yellow Eyes is reportedly about a teenage girl with schizophrenia who has hallucinations. She suspects that her neighbor has kidnapped a child. “Her parents try desperately to help her live a normal life, without exposing their own tragic secrets, and the only person who believes her is Caleb – a boy she isn’t even sure exists.”

“I was truly taken by the heartbreaking story of I Saw A Man With Yellow Eyes. Castille Landon has written a tremendous script and has proven to be a fabulous director, tirelessly searching for the most truthful and artful ways to tell this tale of mental illness. Castille and the incredible cast and crew have gone all-in to make the often-misunderstood world of schizophrenia a bit more familiar. It’s an honor to be a part of such a noble and artistic film,” Connick Jr. told the site.

Heigl added, “When this unique and thought-provoking project came my way I knew it was a story I desperately wanted to be a part of telling. Not only am I proud to be collaborating with a talented female director, a beautiful and talented young actress, and one of my all-time favorite male leads, but I get to be a part of telling a story that touches on themes I believe to be incredibly relevant and meaningful like mental illness, tragedy, grief, unconditional love and hope. I am honored and privileged to be a part of this film.”

I Saw a Man With Yellow Eyes is produced by Joseph Restaino, Robert Molloy and Joe Riley. The film will shoot in partnership with Film Tampa Bay and the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commissions.
