Question: What’s the psychological thriller about?Source
Donahue: It’s about three kids in Louisiana in the 1950s, who find a dead body. It’s kind of Stand By Me meets Night of the Hunter. It’s really, really well-written. I did not write it.
Question: Do you have a title?
Donahue: Yeah, it’s called Beard’s Creek.
Question: And a cast?
Donahue: It’s Stuart Townsend, who played Lestat in Interview with a Vampire and also, Emilie De Ravin, who’s one of the stars of Lost.
Question: Oh, that’s interesting and I presume it’s an indie.
Donahue: Oh, yeah. It’s like – you know, under – well, I shouldn’t say how much, but, under Hollywood budget.
Question: Are you going to try and get it ready in time for the festivals?
Donahue: Well, we’re still getting the finance – we lost the financing because of the financial crisis. And we’ll try to cobble it back together.

Imdb is listing Beard's Creek as a new Emilie movie. Imdb is not the best source out there but Emilie was rumoured to be in this project early this year so this could be true. I haven't heard anything official and I can't access the info on imdb though. I was able to find one article about this. The article is a an interview with Tom Donahue who is an editor I think. It's from last March.
