Maddie Hasson, Genesis Rodriguez Join ‘Fixation’

New project for Maddie!

VARIETY – Maddie Hasson and Genesis Rodriguez have signed on to star in “Fixation,” a female-driven psychological thriller from director Mercedes Bryce Morgan.

Hasson stars as Dora, a young woman at the center of an unusual murder trial. As the film progresses, Dora is subjected to a psychiatric evaluation, and as the tests become more personal — and frightening — she begins to question the true motives of her doctor and is forced to live through the recreations of her past.

The description of the project explains that the story is intended to be an exploration of how women are gaslit by men in positions of power and boasts a predominantly female, LGBTQ and BIPOC crew, both in front of and behind the camera, led by Morgan — a queer, Latina filmmaker.

Best known for directing “Stargate Origins,” the Facebook series “Five Points” and music videos like Marshmello and Bastille’s “Happier,” Morgan makes her feature directorial debut with the movie, from producers 4AM Films and Fever Dream Studios. The film’s script comes from Blacklist screenwriter William Day Frank, who developed the story with Morgan and Fever Dream Studios’ Katrina Kudlick. Kudlick will also produce alongside 4AM Films’ Max Topplin and Jordan Hayes.

UTA Independent Film Group will handle domestic sales on the feature and represents Hasson, Morgan and Rodriguez. Hasson will next be seen in James Wan’s upcoming Warner Bros. film “Malignant.” Known for her voicing Honey Lemon in the “Big Hero Six” franchise and most recently seen in Quibi’s “The Fugitive” reboot, Rodriguez is also repped by DePaz Management. Morgan is also repped by Pathfinder Media.

YouTube wants more of Doug Liman’s Impulse.

The streamer has renewed the drama for a second season, it revealed on stage at Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon.

The series, which stars Maddie Hasson as rebellious teen Henry Cole who has a mysterious power, will return to YouTube’s subscription video service, Premium, with 10 new episodes in 2019. YouTube says that the pilot of the show, which is available for free on the service, has received 8 million views since its June 6 debut. YouTube does not reveal viewership numbers outside of the publicly available stats for its free episodes.

Impulse, which hails from Liman’s Hypnotic and Universal Cable Productions, is based on the Jumper universe novel by Steven Gould. The novel Jumper was the basis for Liman’s film of the same name. With Impulse he returned to the world as director and executive producer. David Bartis and Gene Klein also serve as executive producers for UCP.

“This dramatic thriller has all of the right elements — with unexplained events and complex characters who drew us into their mysterious world right from the start,” said YouTube head of original content Susanne Daniels. “We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Universal Cable Productions and the talented team at Hypnotic to create another intriguing season.”

Impulse was one of the first hourlong projects to come to YouTube Premium (previously YouTube Red). It is part of a growing slate of projects commissioned under Daniels that seek to bring a broader audience to the service, in addition to the young viewers who come for videos of their favorite YouTubers. Other YouTube Premium shows include Karate Kid spinoff Cobra Kai and Step Up: High Water. In the works are Jordan Peele-produced anthology Weird City, space-set Origin and a The Edge of Seventeen spinoff.
