Bella Thorne is now gearing up to direct her second film in 2024.

Following the recent announcement of Bella Thorne‘s feature directorial debut with “Color Your Hurt,” the actress-turned-filmmaker will be stepping behind the camera once again for “Ash Beneath the Current.”

Based on a story by Thorne, adapted alongside Leaf Lieber, the film will be shot at Tuscany Film Studios in Italy, the new facility opened by Andrea Iervolino. 

Iervolino will produce the film, with Jen Gatien (“Chelsea on the Rocks,” “Jack & Diane”) and Mark Emms (“Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitive”) serving as executive producers.

“Ash Beneath the Current” follows the journey of a young woman who returns home after a decade away for her sister’s funeral, only to find herself stranded in a cove isolated from civilization. 

As she navigates through grief, family dynamics, and the resilience of the human spirit, she embarks on a perilous journey of survival.

Thorne expressed her excitement about the project, stating, “I’m beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to step into the director’s chair once again, especially for a project as emotionally rich and visually captivating as ‘Ash Beneath the Current.’ 

As an avid horror fan, I wrote the screenplay from my heart, drawing from personal experiences of family, trauma, and tragedy. I’m ready to dive deep into this journey and bring it to life on screen.”

To prepare for her role as director, Thorne recently wrote and directed two short films: “Unsettled,” currently in post-production, and “Paint Her Red,” which premiered at the 2023 Taormina Film Festival.

Andrea Iervolino expressed his admiration for Thorne’s talent, stating, “Bella’s discovery was a remarkable moment for me. 

While I had long admired her acting talent, it was her short film showcased at the Taormina Film Festival that truly revealed her prowess as a director. 

Witnessing her multifaceted skill set, I knew I had to collaborate with Bella. ‘Ash Beneath the Current’ marks the inception of what I believe will be a prolific partnership, with numerous exceptional projects on the horizon. 

Providing my innovative studios in Italy for this venture fills me with immense joy, as I anticipate an extraordinary journey ahead.”

Thorne is represented by CAA, Thirty Three Management, and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof and Fishman.
