Robert Sheehan (‘Love/Hate,’ ‘Misfits,’ ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’), Jack Fox (‘Dracula,’ ‘Fresh Meat’), Lily Cole (‘The Moth Diaries,’ ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’), David O’Hara (‘Reach Me,’ ‘The Departed’) and Tamzin Merchant (‘Jane Eyre,’ ‘The Tudors’) have been confirmed to star in the supernatural drama ‘The Messenger.’
Per ScreenDaily, the Andrew Kirk-penned film centres on Jack, “a young man who has been in and out of secure units all his life, given drugs to try and shut out his visions of the dead. He becomes unwillingly embroiled in the unfinished business of Mark, a journalist brutally murdered in the local park and his television presenter wife, Sarah, to whom he’s desperate to say one last goodbye.
Jack finds himself getting closer to Sarah, obsessed with passing on Mark’s message. Discovering hidden secrets and lies finally pushes the fragile Jack over the edge but there is hope when his estranged sister, Emma, gets in touch. Jack starts to remember the past they shared together and as the memories come flooding back, he starts to confront the truth about the death of his father.”
David Blair (‘Best Laid Plans’) is behind the camera with filming scheduled to kick off this week in the UK. Producers on the film include Terry Stone of Gateway Films, Ratio Film’s Richard Turner and Richard Hart, and Michael Knowles.
