After exhausting all other options, John and Laura Taylor played by Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall seek to have a baby with the help of a surrogate named Anna. (Jaz Sinclair) Things take an unfortunate turn when Anna’s boyfriend is charged with domestic battery, which forces the Taylors to allow Anna to stay with them until their baby is born.
In the new Jon Cassar directed thriller When The Bough Breaks, Anna develops an unhealthy fascination with the handsome John, and the lavish lifestyle of the Taylors. Her interest then turns to obsession as she begins wearing Laura’s clothes and throwing herself onto John. All of this then leads the couple on a life or death chase to keep their unborn child safe, while Anna’s wicked game unfolds.
Previously titled The Surrogate, the film has no tentative release date other than September 2016 but so far seems to be racking up a buzz among moviegoers. Watch the trailer below.
