The Love Lies Bleeding script co-written by Weronika Tofilska centers on the extreme measures taken to succeed in the world of bodybuilding. Stewart will be the protective lover of a female bodybuilder in pursuit of her American Dream.

Conflicts will arise for someone working to achieve her goal to become the best in her field. The athlete will do everything it takes to win. Sometimes possibly at the expense of friends, family and love. What can a person give up or turn away just to fulfill their ambition?

Glass is a European award winning writer and director of Saint Maud. The movie is a psychological thriller, horror about a hospice nurse obsessed with a patient she takes care of. Critics have called the movie a ‘religious psychological horror’ promising endless nightmares.

One can only imagine the depth how Rose Glass can go into the psyche of her characters. This time in the mind of a struggling female bodybuilder.

Tofilska is also a director and writer with a number of projects to her credit. She has previously worked with Glass back in 2015 for A Moment of Horror where she also wrote and directed the segment The Doorkeeper.
