Alfre Woodard is set to star in the upcoming mystery thriller ‘The Forfeiture Clause.’ The shooting of the project will kick off in Atlanta, Georgia, next month. The film revolves around a newlywed couple who, through a living trust, inherit a spectacular estate featuring a luxurious custom-built home, a serene pool, and a rejuvenating spa. The property boasts a private lake, expansive sustainable agriculture, fruit orchards, vibrant botanical gardens, lush vegetation, and sprawling vineyards set against rolling hills.
As the narrative unfolds, the couple’s ownership of this idyllic homestead comes with a crucial condition: they must not violate the contingency stipulation outlined in the land trust. The duo’s perfect life takes a spine-chilling turn when they encounter a malevolent force within the forbidden area of the property.
