The movie, which will star Amber Heard as a divorced mother who gets caught up in the family drama of her young son’s murder, has been in production since September.

Nick Jonas is currently starring as the dad in the HBO show, which premiered in January.
In the film, Amber has a scene with her mom that’s actually filmed in her hometown of Lubbock, Texas.
Amber has always wanted to make a movie about her mother’s career, but she has had difficulty getting financing for the project.
She is currently in negotiations with producers for a film, but has yet to see if the movie will ever come to fruition.
Amber said she was “totally thrilled” to be working on I Am not your Mama.
“My mom has always been a source of strength for me, but I also wanted to tell a story about the women who have shaped my life,” she told Variety.
“I am really excited to be taking on this role, and I hope people are as excited as I am.”
I Am your mom is scheduled to hit theaters on May 15.
It’s the latest in a line of projects that Amber has made for Paramount Pictures, including a feature film based on the book, which is set to debut in 2018.
