Echo Valley will be Ingelsby’s fourth picture working with Scott Free. The pair previously worked together on Out of The Furnace, American Woman and Our Friend.

A Thriller Film That Sees How Far a Mother’s Love Can Go
Echo Valley is a story about a mother named Kate Garrett, played by Moore, who’s currently having a hard time going through a personal tragedy. She spends most of her days boarding and training horses at the Echo Valley Farm. Things are a little more difficult for Kate as her daughter Clare, played by Sweeney, is in her rebellious phase. Things will take a turn when Clare frantically arrives one fateful night covered with someone else’s blood. The film will see how a mother’s love will be tested and how far a mother will go to save their child.
Echo Valley veers toward the thriller territory and Julianne Moore is no stranger to these kinds of films. Aside from doing Sharper, the veteran actress has starred in thriller films through the course of her career like erotic thriller Chloe, cannibalistic film Hannibal, supernatural horror film Carrie and a lot more. Sydney Sweeney is also not new to thriller films as she starred in a few projects as well, such as erotic thriller film The Voyeurs, vampire thriller film Night Teeth, and psychological thriller TV series Sharp Objects to name a few.
