Myriad to Release Cry of the Owl


Myriad Pictures will release the psychological thriller Cry of the Owl domestically in the fall, reports Variety.

The film, which stars Julia Stiles and Paddy Considine, is based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith, who wrote the “The Talented Mr. Ripley.”

Written and directed by Jamie Thraves, the story centers on a young woman (Stiles) who discovers she is being stalked by a troubled local man (Considine). Her fear turns to attraction until her boyfriend finds out and devises an elaborate scheme to frame Considine’s character for a murder that never happened.
