Sadie Sink (Stranger Things, The Whale) is set to star in Searchlight Pictures’ rock opera “O’Dessa.”
Set in a post-apocalyptic future, “O’Dessa” is an original rock opera about a farm girl on an epic quest to recover a cherished family heirloom. Her journey leads her to a strange and dangerous city where she meets her one true love – but in order to save his soul, she must put the power of destiny and song to the ultimate test.
Geremy Jasper is writing and directing the film. The original songs will be written and produced by Jasper and Jason Binnick. The film also reunites producers Michael Gottwald for the Department of Motion Pictures, Noah Stahl, and Rodrigo Teixeira for RT Features, as well as executive producers Jonathan Montepare, Dan Janvey, and Lourenço Sant’Anna, all of whom worked on Jasper’s breakout hit Patti Cake$.
Senior Vice President Taylor Friedman and Creative Executive Cornelia Burleigh will be overseeing the project for Searchlight Pictures.
“We are so excited to be collaborating with Geremy again,” said Searchlight Presidents Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum. “With O’dessa, he brings extraordinary and visceral energy to a whole new cinematic landscape.”
