Actress Shelley Duvall will act again after a 20-year hiatus
The writer-director Scott Goldberg talked about the film and how excited he was to have Shelley involved in the project. He shared, “We are huge fans of ‘The Shining’ and it’s honestly one of my favorite horror movies of all time, up there with John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ and George A. Romero’s ‘Day of the Dead’ with the dark tones they delivered in their movies, along with perfect scores and elements that make them my personal favorites. Shelley contributed to ‘The Shining’ being an absolute masterpiece by giving her all, and performing in a way that really showcased the fear and horror of a mother in isolation.”
Shelley is also known for her work in Annie Hall, Three Women, Roxanne, Popeye, Thieves Like Us, and many more. She also worked as a writer and producer and has received a Peabody Award and the Cannes Film Festival’s prize for Best Actress.
In more recent years, she gained some attention for her appearance on The Dr. Phil Show where she talked about her mental illness. She was later taken to a mental health facility after making some odd comments. Hopefully, she got the help she needed and is excited about her new role.
