Madeleine Brewer breaks out of Gilead and enters another “pruning” nightmare. The Emmy Award nominee signed on to share Lola Blanc’s psychological horror picture about a far-right political commentator who “discovers that her speech inspired a mass shooting.” Deadline broke the news.
Written by Blanc and Jeremy Radin, “Pruning” explores how Sammy (Brewer) must “handle the conscience part” after a tragedy for which she is partly responsible.
Prior to her Emmy-nominated role as Janine in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Burr had a recurring role in “Orange is the New Black.” Her movie credits include “Hustlers” and “Cam”.
Blanc’s other credits include In Other Words, a short story about former lovers who make a truce.
