If you’re looking for the next hit of supernatural British horror, the Messenger could be it.
Currently shooting on location in the UK, The Messenger is written by Andrew Kirk and will be directed by double BAFTA and Emmy award-winning director David Blair (Best Laid Plans, Accused).The cast includes Robert Sheehan (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Misfits), Jack Fox (Dracula, Fresh Meat) and Lily Cole (The Moth Diaries, Snow-white and the Huntsman).
Director David Blair said: “I have been around the project for quite a time, and it certainly feels good right now that all that painstaking analysis and work on the screenplay is bearing fruit. I have been fortunate working, during that period, with producers who’ve provided me with a platform from which I believe the film can really flourish. And no director would say that if they didn’t mean it!”
The Messenger tells the story of Jack who is seemingly unwell. After being in and out of secure units all of his young life, it appears that no amount of treatment or medication can make the messages from the dead go away. The Messenger is the story of Jack’s last melt down.
