Successful author Veronica Henley finds herself trapped in a nightmarish reality and must find a way to break free of the horrors at hand.
In March 2019, it was announced Janelle Monáe had joined the cast of the film, with Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz directing from a screenplay they wrote. Ray Mansfield and Sean McKittrick will serve as producers on the film under their QC Entertainment banner, while Lionsgate will distribute. In April 2019, Eric Lange, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Tongayi Chirisa, Gabourey Sidibe, Robert Aramayo and Lily Cowles joined the cast of the film. In May 2019, Marque Richardson joined the cast of the film.
It was scheduled to be released on April 24, 2020. However, due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic it was pulled from the schedule. Lionsgate intends to announce a new release date "once there is more clarity on when movie theaters" will reopen.
