Michael Shannon to Make Feature Directorial Debut With 'Eric Larue' Adaptation

Michael Shannon is set to make his directorial debut in an adaptation of Brett Neveu's 2002 play, Eric Larue, Deadline has reported. The movie follows a mother, Janice, whose 17-year-old son Eric shot and killed three of his classmates. Three months after his arrest, Janice has neither gone to see him nor she has found a way to deal with what happened. As Janice faces a meeting with the mothers of the other boys in church, and a long-delayed visit to her son in prison, the story becomes not about the violence but about what we choose to think and do in order to survive trauma.

‘Abandoned’ Review: Emma Roberts, Michael Shannon & John Gallagher Jr. Cannot Save This Prosaic Horror Thriller

It’s unlikely that Spencer Squire’s debut feature “Abandoned” will be keeping anybody up at night. At a time when the horror genre is going through a (mostly female-led) renaissance with films like “Raw,” “Censor,” “Saint Maud,” “Relic,” and “The Babadook,” “Abandoned” feels like the prosaic coup de grâce which has been threatening the jump-scare chillers for the last ten years. And that’s not because it’s especially bad or clumsy in the way, say, “The Nun” or the recent “Candyman” remake was. Rather because all its tricks are blandly on display here—the doors in desperate need of WD-40; the glacial specters at the window; the creepy, giggling child; the inevitable possession—as is their distinct lack of novel combinations.
