Reflective Light? – TBA (Announced)
Based on the 2014 novel, The Deepest Secret, by Carla Buckley, Reflective Light is expected to tell the story of a teenage boy suffering from a malady that makes him severely allergic to sunlight. His mother, who feels such a devoted and caring bond with her ailing son, finds herself alienated from the rest of their family. In the process, this mother and acutely-ill son forge an oddly sustainable nocturnal lifestyle for themselves — one that potentially comes at her own cost. It’s an intriguing premise for a drama, which comes from Focus Features and would serve as the directorial debut of art photographer Gregory Crewdson. Crewdson and his partner, Julianne Hiam, also wrote the screenplay.
But, admittedly, there haven’t been any new updates on Reflective Light since its initial announcement back in 2017. One could reasonably assume, therefore, that the light has died on this one. It was previously expected to start production in 2018, but that start date came and passed. It’s unclear, therefore, if this one is still happening. But if some developments arise, we’ll keep you posted here with the latest news right here at CinemaBlend.
