Finding a spell book in a basement almost always invites trouble.
Queen of Bones–a new folk horror film–has started shooting in Canada with its four new lead actors, according to a report on Deadline.
Julia Butters, Jacob Tremblay, Martin Freeman and Taylor Schilling will headline the pic from Appian Way, Lumanity Productions and Productivity Media. No release window has yet been announced.
Queens of Bones–directed by Robert Budreau (Delia’s Gone) from a screenplay by Michael Burgner (The Darkest Corner of Paradise)–is set in 1931 Oregon, and follows twins Lily (Butters) and Sam (Tremblay), who live in a remote homestead with their widowed father Malcolm (Freeman), according to the synopsis.
But, when the siblings find an “Icelandic spell book in the cellar, they begin to suspect a connection between their mother’s death and dark forces in the woods. So, they embark on a dangerous mission to force their father and his friend Ida May (Schilling) to reveal the truth.”
The film’s producers include Budreau, Jennifer Davisson, Michael Hampton, William G. Santor, Doug Murray and Ryan Reaney.
Budreau said he was “thrilled” to be working with this “stellar cast to bring this Depression-era folk horror script to life.”
