‘In The Fire’ Trailer: Amber Heard Stars In Supernatural Thriller Opening On Friday The 13th

It’s kind of a wild time to have two Amber Heard movies coming within a short time of one another. She’s been a polarizing figure since her public falling out with Johnny Depp, and the defamation case against him which she lost. And like him, she could start losing out on some pretty big roles very soon, with rumors that her role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was drastically reduced. Still, Heard is a big name and a talented actress, which she’ll get to show in her new movie, In the Fire.

Heard stars with Eduardo Noriega (Transsiberian) in the 19th-century supernatural thriller about a New York psychiatrist who heads to a small Colombian village to treat an autistic boy who may or may not be possessed by a demon.

The film is directed and co-written by Conor Allyn, who previously helmed the Frank Grillo-led Western drama, No Man’s Land.

Here’s the synopsis: A doctor from New York (Amber Heard) travels to a remote plantation in the 1890s to care for a disturbed boy who seems to have inexplicable abilities. She begins treating the child, but in doing so ignites a war of science versus religion with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil and is the reason for all the village’s woes.

In the Fire hits theaters and VOD on October 13th.
