Tim Roth’s Killing Faith to be Shot in New Mexico

Tim Roth-starrer thriller film ‘Killing Faith’ is slated to be filmed in New Mexico. The movie is set in the summer of 1859 and follows “a widowed physician, who reluctantly agrees to take a recently freed slave and her mysterious Caucasian daughter on a 5-day journey through the bloody West to find a distant town’s Faith Healer. The woman believes her daughter is possessed. The doctor believes she simply carries The Sickness. Either way, the fact remains that every living thing the girl touches mysteriously dies,” as per the official logline.

The film is written and directed by Ned Crowley, who previously helmed the 2016 black comedy movie ‘Middle Man,’ starring Jim O’Heir, Andrew J. West, and Josh McDermitt. The film premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival, where it became the winner of the New American Cinema Competition.
