Teresa Palmer will play the female lead in a feature adaptation of the SXSW sci-fi/horror short “Welcome to Willits: After Sundown.”
The story will focus on a group of young campers who get lost in the woods near Willits, Calif. — the heart of “the Emerald Triangle” — while looking for hot springs. They find themselves entangled with a man whose mounting paranoia about alien invaders makes him increasingly dangerous.
Palmer’s real-life husband Mark Webber will reprise his role from the short as the paranoid man and Palmer will play his niece. Director Trevor Ryan and his screenwriter brother Tim Ryan will also return.
“Welcome to Willits: After Sundown” is part of the SXSW’s Midnight Short competition.
Palmer starred in “Warm Bodies” and will be seen next in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” She’s repped by WME and Management 360.
