Crime drama Blindfire has revealed its cast which includes Brian Geraghty (The Alienist), Bethany Joy Lenz (Grey’s Anatomy) and Sharon Leal (Instinct).
Blindfire centers around a police officer (Geraghty) who, while responding to a violent hostage call, kills the African American suspect only to later learn of his innocence. Sensing this was a set-up, and facing repercussions, he must track down the person responsible while examining his own accountability and the ingrained racism which brought him to this point. Leal will play his partner, while Lenz has been cast as his wife.
Producer Howard Barish (the 13th) had this to say:
“Blindfire is an important story to me, it’s a film that touches on racial tension, identity, and redemption. My hope is that like some of my other projects, it will become a conversation starter for so many issues prevalent in our society today.”
Mike Nell will write and direct.
