Gary Shore will be directing The Queen Mary, the first to come in a planned trilogy of horror films inspired by the observations of paranormal activity on-board the famous ocean vessel. Star Trek actress Alice Eve has signed to star in the movie written by Stephen Oliver, Tom Vaughan, and Shore. According to Deadline, the project has been developed and produced by Brett Tomberlin of Imagination Design works, along with Nigel Sinclair and Nicholas Farrall of White Horse Pictures, Thorsten Schumacher and Lars Sylvest for Rocket Science and Jason Newmark and Laurie Cook of Newscope.
Details of the plot have been kept secret for now but the producers have spoken a few words on the project. Tomberlin has stated “We were immediately obsessed with Gary’s intelligent and twisted multi-film take on a great American legend and could not be more excited working with an extremely gifted actor in bringing this story to audiences around the world.” Shore adds “I’m fascinated, obsessed and disturbed by this ship – there is something very dark and human about her. It’s a stylistic tightrope between reverence and horror.” The movie is said to be released end of 2021 or early 2022.
Time Magazine has labeled the Queen Mary the most haunted place in the world and because of this receives two million visitors annually. The ship itself is now currently docked in Long Beach, CA, usually open to tour or even stay the night.
