Actress Kate Hudson is set to star with Craig Robinson in BLOOD MOON.

Writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour's BLOOD MOON is being produced by Oscar winner John Lesher (Birdman) via his Le Grisbi banner.

Zac Efron is in talks to join the intriguing fantasy feature, which will chart the story of a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum in New Orleans, reports deadline.com.

Set in hedonistic streets of New Orleans, the film is inspired by fantasy-adventure movies of the 1980s and 1990s. It is understood to pair strange, violent and humourous sequences with a range of music from heavy metal to Italian techno.

Production is set to begin in 2019.
