Daryl Hannah, Kirsten Prout And Chloe Bridges Set To Star In Social Media Drama Offline

Everyone knows that the time restraints involved with filmmaking don’t allow for truly topical subjects to be depicted at the height of their popularity. Cheaper TV movies are better at doing that sort of thing. But while the upcoming independent feature Offline centers on subject matter that isn’t necessarily on the forefront of everyone’s minds, it will put a narrative spin on it, and could end up being relevant itself for quite a number of years.

The film will highlight one of the downsides of social media, and Variety reports its cast will include Chloe Bridges (The Carrie Diaries), Kirsten Prout (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), and Daryl Hannah, who hasn’t really made a movie worth mentioning since Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 2 in 2004.

The story centers on a top student (Prout) who sees her life get turned upside down when inappropriate photographs of her start appearing on her online profile, throwing her collegiate and occupational plans for the future into jeopardy. Bridges, whose Carrie Diaries series just got renewed for a second season, will play the lead's best friend, which Hannah will play Prout's mother.

The film will be directed by Mark Quod, whose only other credit is the direct-to-DVD flick #1 Cheerleader Camp. Newcomer Anna Rasmussen is handling the script. Offline will begin production in Los Angeles later this month.
