Relative Newcomer Jaz Sinclair Joins Regina Hall & Morris Chestnut in 'Hand that Rocks the Cradle"-Style Thriller

16 December 2014 2:17 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Jaz Sinclair has joined the cast of Screen Gems’ psychological thriller "When the Bough Breaks" in which she'll co-star with Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut. To be directed by Jon Cassar, "When the Bough Breaks" (previously titled "The Surrogate"), tells the story of a couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby, but, as you might expect, things don't go entirely as expected.  No confirmation yet, but I'd guess that Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut are playing the couple, while Jaz Sinclair will be the surrogate. Director Cassar's resume includes helming episodes of hit TV series like "24," "Daybreak" »

A funny thing happened on the way to Park City: The general upsurge of comedians in the independent film world wound up playing a major role in shaping the 2015 Sundance Film Festival program, per fest director John Cooper and director of programming Trevor Groth.

The effect can be felt across all aspects of the feature lineup, which boasts a total of 118 films (103 of them world premieres), but especially among the 16 titles set to screen in the always buzzy U.S. dramatic competition. That’s one of the four juried slates (including U.S. documentary, World Cinema dramatic and World Cinema documentary) unveiled today along with the festival’s noncompetitive Next section.

“There are probably more comedies in the dramatic competition than ever before,” Groth said, citing such titles as “Results,” a romantic laffer from mumblecore auteur Andrew Bujalski, with Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders as a pair of personal trainers; Patrick Brice’s “The Overnight, »
