Phoebe Dynevor (Fair Play, “Bridgerton”) is set to star in ‘Wichita Libra’ from writer/director Henry Dunham’s (The Standoff at Sparrow Creek).

Described as a gripping thriller the plot reads;

In the aftermath of a triple murder in her hometown, Frannie Jacobs (Phoebe Dynevor) fled rural Kansas for Chicago and started a new life. A decade on, she is drawn back home after her brother’s death to decode a cryptic letter he left behind, suggesting that the wrong man was charged with the crime that tore her community and family apart all those years ago and that an anonymous missing woman could clear his name.

The feature is produced by Jay Van Hoy (The Lighthouse, The Witch, American Honey, Hell of a Summer). Currently, in pre-production, the film begins shooting this year. Mister Smith Entertainment will launch international sales at the upcoming 2023 European Film Market in Berlin later this month. UTA is handling North American rights.
