Shelley Duvall Returns in 'The Forest Hills' - After 20 Year Hiatus
Updated: Jun 29
That's right, Shelley Duvall will be putting retirement on hold to play a motherly role of sorts, in Scott Goldberg's upcoming feature film, The Forest Hills.
After announcing her retirement back in 2002, many thought they would never hear the name Shelley Duvall come up for a movie again. My hopes of seeing her host a re-vamp of Faerie Tale Theatre or Nightmare Classics were dashed. Having beaten her Shining co-star Jack Nicholson into retirement by almost eight years, the 73-year-old Duvall has been enjoying her golden years in her home state of Texas.
The Shining actress joins Edward Furlong, Dee Wallace, and Chiko Mendez for The Forest Hills, an indie horror/thriller written and directed by Scott Goldberg. Duvall will provide a motherly, inner voice to a man named Rico, who is inflicted with severe head injuries while camping in the Catskill Mountains. Unfortunately for Rico, those injuries will lead to terrifying visions, disturbing thoughts, and emotional turmoil, the last thing anybody would want to suffer in the isolation of wilderness. Will we get to see Shelley Duvall on screen? Will her role be limited to voice over only? Time will tell for The Forest Hills, the indie feature that is currently filming at this time.
