SHADOW IN THE CLOUD Opens In Aussie Cinemas This Month!

One of the programming highlights of last year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was Roseanne Liang‘s SHADOW IN THE CLOUD, a breakneck genre hybrid, starring Chloë Grace Moretz. Released in the United States direct to Video-On-Demand earlier this month, we’re pleased to report that Roadshow Films will be giving SHADOW IN THE CLOUD a shot on the big screen in Australian cinemas from January 14.

In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett (Moretz, GRETA) joins the all- male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear…lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo.

Shot in New Zealand and conceived by Max Landis (CHRONICLE), the screenplay was rewritten within an inch of its life by filmmaker Roseanne Liang ahead of production to remove as much of Max’s work as possible due to the ongoing allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
