This princess just “bagged” a plum horror part.
Best known to genre fans as Princess Ciri on the hit Netflix series The Witcher, Freya Allan is branching out to feature films with the horror entry Baghead, as reported by Deadline. Check out the teaser trailer on this page for a preview of the movie.
The film–from Studiocanal and The Picture Company–will start shooting this fall in Berlin. Alberto Corredor will direct the feature from a screenplay by Christina Pamies and Bryce McGuire. Corredor previously directed the short film that was acquired to be made into this full-length horror feature.
The film follows “a mysterious figure called Baghead, a diminutive wrinkled-up person who is able to manifest the dead and bring them back to our world for short intervals,” according to the official synopsis. Allan will play the film’s lead, who must contend with the evil entity which has connections to her family’s past.
In the film, people seek out Baghead “to reconnect with lost loved ones. But once in contact with the medium, its “true powers and intentions are revealed and there is a high price to pay for its contact with the deceased.”
Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona will produce the film, with Corredor, Lorcan Reilly, Roy Lee and Jake Wagner serving as executive producers.
Allan can be seen as Ciri in the second season of The Witcher that will debut later this year on Netflix. Ciri, as fans of the series know, is linked by destiny to the show’s main character, Geralt, played by Henry Cavill (of Man of Steel and Justice League fame).
