Star Thrower Entertainment, Ball and Chain Productions and Anonymous Content will partner on The Waiting, an upcoming thriller to be directed by Kasra Farahani and set to star James Caan (The Godfather, Misery), Logan Miller (Scouts vs. Zombies, Night Moves) and Keir Gilchrist (It Follows, It’s Kind of a Funny Story). Farahani’s short film “Noon” was optioned within 24 hours of its release by 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment where it is currently in feature development.

The Waiting begins when two high school filmmakers decide to create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting neighbor.
Written by Mark Bianculli and Jeff Richard, The Waiting will be produced by Tim White and Trevor White of Star Thrower Entertainment; Giri Tharan of Ball and Chain Productions; Rosalie Swedlin of Anonymous Content; and Elana Barry. Star Thrower Head of Production Allan Mandelbaum, who brought the project in, will also produce. Star Thrower and Ball and Chain will finance and produce. Anonymous Content who developed the project and initially set it up at Warner Brothers will also produce.
“Mark and Jeff have crafted an excellent script that seamlessly combines elements of a riveting thriller and fascinating character study,” say Tim and Trevor White. “This script, together with Kasra’s elegant vision and our compelling cast, makes ‘The Waiting’ the type of filmmaker and talent driven project ideal for Star Thrower.”
Farahani is represented by UTA and Management 360. Caan is repped by CAA, Miller by Innovative Artists and Primary Wave Entertainment, and Gilchrist by ICM, Thruline Entertainment and Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman.
Principal photography is set to begin this month in Los Angeles.
