“The Mad Whale” is a co-production between Franco’s Elysium Bandini Studios and USC’s School of Cinema. The gothic drama is set in the claustrophobic and brutal world of a women’s mental asylum circa the late 1800s where the patients, some of whom are insane, are tasked with staging a play based on Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”

The film is the fourth iteration of the “Franco Feature” that professors Franco and John Watson teach at USC.
