And now on to Ghost Stories, a new thriller that just start principal photography over in Yorkshire. It’s based on an award-winning play and is written and directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, both of whom have worked on a number of well known projects, including Psychobitches and Severance, respectively. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man ‘belief buster’ – has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three stories that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last.”
Andy Nyman stars as Phillip as well, and the cast includes Paul Whitehouse (Alice in Wonderland, ‘Harry & Paul’, ‘The Fast Show’), Alex Lawther (‘Black Mirror’, Old Boys, The Imitation Game) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit franchise, ‘Fargo’, ‘Sherlock’). And Captain America: Civil War, one of the best movies I saw this year. Everyone has said nice things about working on the film so far:
Jeremy Dyson & Andy Nyman said of the project, “Over half a million people have seen the play and now we are beyond excited to be bringing the film version of ‘Ghost Stories’ to life. We adore supernatural thrillers and will be doing our utmost to ensure we give our audience an unforgettable experience that makes them laugh, scream and haunts their dreams”.
Martin Freeman added, “I’m delighted to be on board Ghost Stories. Andy and Jeremy’s script is funny, scary and extremely surprising. And they have amazing taste in actors”.
You’ll know more when I know more. In the mean time, happy Day of the Dead!
