Boyd Holbrook (The Predator) and Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake) will star in LD Entertainment’s period piece Eight for Silver, Deadline reports today.
Alistair Petrie (Hellboy) will also star in the film.
Set in the countryside of France, the 19th-century horror pic follows John McBride (Holbrook), a pathologist assigned to determine if the body of a 14-year-old boy found in the woods is the work of a man or a beast.
“McBride is then welcomed as a guest into the family home of a local wealthy landowner, Seamus Laurent (Petrie), and his wife Isabelle (Reilly), who share that their own son, a friend of the victim, has been missing for two weeks. Distraught and determined to keep her daughter safe, Isabelle finds comfort in the arrival of John while he is forced to confront the horrors of his own dark past.”
Eight for Silver will be written and directed by Sean Ellis
Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon are producing.
