The German director is also in early talks to direct “One Plus One” for the studio.

Krisha Fairchild gave one of 2016’s most acclaimed performances in Trey Edward Shults’ “Krisha,” about a woman who visits her estranged family over Thanksgiving. Now she’s set to appear in a new film entitled “September 12th” about folk music amidst a national tragedy. The film follows two strangers Elliott (Joe Purdy) and Joni (Amber Rubarth) whose lives are unexpectedly thrust together after their plane from L.A. to New York is grounded on the morning of September 11, 2001. Both accept help from Joni’s family friend (Fairchild) who lends them a rusty old Chevy van and decide to drive to New York. Though the shock of 9/11 quickly threatens to derail their journey, the pair discover they share a love for old folk songs and soon the two bond over music and bear witness to a nation that lifts each other up in the wake of tragedy. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below. »
