Patrick Schwarzenegger (Midnight Sun) and Sasha Lane (American Honey) are just two of the young stars joining Daniel Isn’t Real.
Joining the supernatural thriller alongside Schwarzenegger and Lane are Miles Robbins (Blockers) and Hannah Marks (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency).
Robbins portrays a troubled college freshman who suffers a violent family trauma and resurrects his childhood imaginary friend Daniel (played by Schwarzenegger) to help him cope. Charismatic and full of manic energy, Daniel helps him achieve his dreams, before pushing him to the very edge of sanity and into a desperate struggle for control of his mind and soul.
Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision and ACE Pictures announced the casting news and revealed that production was already underway in New York. The film is based on the novel In “This Way I Was Saved” by Brian DeLeeuw, who co-wrote the script with Adam Egypt Mortimer who also directs.
