After the recent box-office successes of thrillers like Obsessed (Beyonce, Idris Elba) No Good Deed (Taraji P. Henson, Idris Elba) and The Perfect Guy (Sanaa Lathan, Micheal Ealy), Sony Screen Gems is bringing audiences yet another with the release of When The Bough Breaks this September.

The film stars Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall as a married couple who hire a surrogate (Jaz Sinclair) to carry their baby, but things take a horrifying turn. HipHollywood caught up with Chestnut and newcomer Sinclair to talk about the film, and comparisons to other thrillers we’ve seen before.

“It’s kind of like [a mixture of ] The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and Fatal Attraction and Single White Female,” explained Sinclair. “And I play Anna Walsh, a young woman who signs up to be a surrogate … and things get a little crazy.”

“She really carries the movie with her performance,” added Chestnut, who serves as an executive producer on the project. “She’s really young, but when you see what she does as an actress … it’s kind of scary.”

And while Chestnut praised Sinclair, who was just 20-years-old when they shot the film, he also said audiences will see Regina Hall like they’ve never seen her before.

“They normally see her be really funny and comedic, here she goes there,” explained Chestnut. “She gets emotional, and she’s dealing with the most because she is the woman who can’t conceive a child, so the emotional levels that she plays in this movie are really great to watch.”

When the Bough Breaks hits theaters September 9.
