Writer/director set for fantasy horror…

‘Trollhunter’ filmmaker André Øvredal is to take the director’s chair for the psychological horror ‘The Autopsy Of Jane Doe,’ reports Variety.

Based on an original screenplay by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing, the film takes place in “a small-town, family-owned mortuary, where father and son coroners receive a mysterious homicide victim — a beautiful young “Jane Doe.” As they attempt to figure out how she died and who she is, they discover increasingly bizarre clues, which hold the key to terrifying secrets.”

Fred Berger (‘Taking Chance’) and Eric Garcia (‘Matchstick Men’) will produce via their Impostor Pictures banner, with Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh of 42 (‘Welcome to the Punch,’ ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’) co-producing. Filming will take place in London in the winter.
