Alice: Keke Palmer to Star in Historical Thriller Inspired by True Events

Variety is reporting that Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Pimp, Grease Live!) is attached to star in and executive produce the historical thriller Alice from Steel Springs Pictures.

Alice is inspired by the true vents of a woman of servitude in 1800s Georgia, who escapes the 55-acre confines of her captor to discover the shocking reality that exists beyond the tree line — it’s 1973.

“So many films that depict this time in our history are rooted in victimization of the black female lead,” Palmer said. “This story is the opposite and that’s what attracted me to Krystin’s perspective. It tackles the harsh realities of slavery and white supremacy while also offering inspiration and vindication through the story of Alice’s journey. I don’t want anyone to leave the theater feeling debilitated, I want them to feel empowered.”

The movie will be helmed by Krystin Ver Linden, making her directorial debut from her own screenplay.

Alice will be produced by Peter Lawson (John Wick, Spotlight). Jose Agustin Valdes and Luisa Fernanda Espinosa of Steel Springs Pictures will executive produce. Steel Springs is fully financing the project and principal photography is expected to begin this August in Georgia.
