The film is produced by Zachary Quinto, the producers of Margin Call, Before the Door Production’s Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson, and Stephanie Riggs (Sunchaser Entertainment) and Christian Arnold-Beutel. The Banshee Chapter stars Katia Winder (Showtime’s Dexter), Michael McMillian (HBO’s True Blood) and Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs).
The film centers on a young, female journalist (Winter) who follows the mysterious trail of a missing friend (McMillian) that had been experimenting with mind-altering chemicals developed in secret government drug tests. Levine plays the role of a rogue counter-culture novelist with a penchant for substance abuse and firearms who leads the journalist into the mystery of dangerous chemical research. A fast-paced blend of fact and fiction, the film is based on real documents, actual test subject testimony, and uncovered secrets about covert programs run by the CIA.
