The first trailer for the psychological thriller Jane, starring Chlöe Bailey and Madelaine Petsch, has been released.
The feature from Creator+ stars grown-ish Bailey and Riverdale’s Petsch. It also stars Melissa Leo, Ian Owens, Kerri Medders, Chloe Yu and Nina Bloomgarden.
The official description:
The psychological thriller follows Olivia (Petsch), a seemingly perfect high school senior who struggles with grief following the recent loss of a friend. After being deferred from her dream college she begins to spiral and experiences a series of increasingly frightening panic attacks. In an attempt to regain some sense of control, she embarks on a social media-fueled rampage against those that stand in the way of her success but, as things escalate, she is forced to confront—and embrace—her darkest impulses in order to get ahead.
'Jane' is Sabrina Jaglom's directorial debut. Rishi Rajani co-wrote it with Jaglom.
Jane is the second feature film from content studio and distribution platform Creator+, and is produced by Petsch, Debbie Liebling (Hulu’s PEN15), Creator+ Head of Production Nick Phillips (Gunpowder & Sky’s Alt) and Creator+ Head of Content Studio Adam Wescott (YouTube Originals’ This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous).
“Mental wellness and anxiety issues for young adults are more prevalent than ever, said Petsch in a previous statement received by Shadow and Act.“'Jane' resonated with me because it grapples with the perils of these uncomfortable and often taboo topics.”
“Complicated female characters of this age are rarely featured at the center of their own stories, free of the whims of adults or their male counterparts,” said Jaglom. “Furthermore, mental health concerns are so rarely taken seriously in young adults, particularly high functioning ones. I hope this film sparks conversations around these topics while treating the viewer to a dark, thrilling ride.”
'Jane' premieres in select AMC theaters on Aug. 26 and will be streaming exclusively on Creator+ on Sept. 16.
