The film comes from director Michael Mohan, who previously directed Sweeney in the 2021 erotic thriller The Voyeurs for Amazon Studios. Immaculate will come from a screenplay from Andrew Lobel, with Sweeney and Jonathan Davino set to produce the project.
Sweeney will play Cecila in Immaculate, “a woman of devout faith who is offered a fulfilling new role at an illustrious Italian convent.” The film will focus on her travel to the Italian countryside, although the picture-perfect scene is quickly interrupted by some dark and horrifying secrets that she begins to uncover once she’s there.
Sweeney’s is perhaps best known for her role in HBO’s Euphoria, a role in which she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Sweeney also starred in HBO’s anthology series The White Lotus, which also earned her another Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.
