It hasn’t been long since Yvonne Strahovski debuted in Hollywood. But her acting skills and alluring beauty has made her a mainstream actress. Making the recent headlines, this Aussie has landed the lead role in the suspense thriller drama movie He’s Out There.
As per Deadline, Yvonne plays a mother in the movie who comes to visit a remote lake house and soon finds herself fighting for the lives of herself and her two daughters after falling into a terrifying and bizarre nightmare conceived by a homicidal psychopath.
The film is going to be directed by Dennis Iliadis. The script is written by Mike Scannell and the producers are Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Biddle of Unbroken Pictures.
Production on the film begins in July. The release will likely be scheduled for early 2017.
Talking about her roles, this talented charmer recently told Metro US: ‘There’s a sense of freedom in scenes that require those kinds of heightened emotions. It’s a little hard to find those roles. There’s a lot of stuff out there that’s bland, then you find these little gems, roles you can sink your teeth into and explore something interesting.’
However, this is not the first time the Australian beauty has starred in a dark movie. She was previously cast in psychological drama-thriller All I See Is You and fantasy horror I, Frankenstein.
33-year-old Strahovski’s other credits include The Guilt Trip and Killer Elite. Her TV work includes 24, Dexter, and Chuck. Her TV performance for Dexter as the twisted girlfriend of a serial killer and in Chuck was much appraised.
