Things get weird in Corey Deshon’s debut feature Daughter, a new thriller acquired out of the Cannes market by Dark Star Pictures for North America.

Casper Van Dien, Elyse Dinh, Ian Alexander and Vivien Ngô star in the pic about a young woman inducted into a bizarre family as their new surrogate daughter.

Van Dien (Starship Troopers) plays Father, Dinh (HBO’s “Watchmen”) is Mother. Alexander (“The Last of Us Part II”, “Star Trek: Discovery”, “The OA”) plays Brother and Ngô (“Queen Sugar”) marks her first feature lead turn as the titular Daughter.

Adds the site: “Described as a collaborative effort by Deshon and Ngô to challenge the confines of what creators of color are expected to produce within the limits of stereotypical genres and narrative arcs, Daughter features a diverse cast made up predominantly of Vietnamese American actors, and was filmed with an overall cast and crew consisting of 60% women and 80% people of color.”

Daughter is produced by Deshon for Thirteenth Floor Pictures, Ngô, Tracy Chitupatham, and Jes Vu; and executive produced by Sharunya Varriale, Ron Bradley, Matt Bradley, Daniel Goroshko, Laurent Fumeron and Rodolphe Sanzé from OneWorld Entertainment.

Deadline first reported that Yellow Veil Pictures was handling international sales at the ongoing market.
