EXCLUSIVE: Liv Tyler is set to star in The Side Effect, the next thriller by writer-director Ti West. West will be at Sundance to debut V/H/S, the found-footage horror film he co-directed. In The Side Effect, Tyler will play Catherine Rigby, a woman who spends several months alone in space as an experimental subject for a global pharmaceutical company, and finds herself inexplicably pregnant. Paranoia and hysteria reign as the truth behind conception grows more elusive and she remains stranded in space.

The film will be produced by Double Hope Films’ Ted Hope, and Peter Phok, who previously teamed with West on The House Of The Devil and The Innkeepers. The latter film hits U.S. theaters February 3 through Magnet. Tyler, whose resume spans fantasy with The Lord Of The Rings and horror with The Strangers, also will be in Sundance for the debut of Robot And Frank, in which she stars with Frank Langella and Susan Sarandon. Tyler called West “a super-talented exciting young filmmaker. The role of Rigby is a fantastic character within a great thriller and I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into the part.” Read More »
