Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon and Robert Forster are set to star in What They Had, a drama from writer-director Elizabeth Chomko.
Blythe Danner and Taissa Farmiga are also part of the film’s ensemble cast.
Unified’s Keith Kjarval (Inland Empire), Bill Holderman (A Walk In The Woods), Bona Fide Productions’ Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger (Little Miss Sunshine) and June Pictures’ Alex Saks and Andrew Duncan (Thoroughbred) are producing the indie, which is set to begin production in Chicago.
The story centers on a woman (Swank) who must fly back to her hometown when her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother (Danner) wanders into a blizzard. The return home forces her to confront her past.
