‘Went Up The Hill’ Lands Two Leads, Starts Production

by Thomas Tuna

This looks like a complicated family dynamic.

A different kind of ghost story—Went Up The Hill--is shooting in New Zealand with its two leads on board, according to a report on Deadline. The feature–which doesn’t have a release window–is being shopped by Bankside.

Vicky Krieps (M. Night Shyamalan’s Old) and Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things) lead the cast for director Samuel Van Grinsven, who is working from a screenplay he wrote with Jory Anast.

In the film, Jack (Montgomery) travels to New Zealand to attend the funeral of his estranged mother, where he meets her grieving widow Jill (Krieps), according to the synopsis.

But things take a turn for the bizarre when “his mother’s ghost returns to inhabit both Jack and Jill, using each of their bodies to speak to the other–and instigating a life-threatening nocturnal dance among the three of them.”

The film is being produced by Samantha Jennings and Kristina Ceyton of Causeway Films, along with Vicky Pope of POP Film.
