Announced today is that Gary Shore Director of 2014’s Dracula Untold, has been attached to helm The Queen Mary – A horror feature inspired by the legendary haunted ocean liner of the same name.
The upcoming project is being produced by Nigel Sinclair and Nicholas Ferrall of White Horse Pictures (The Woman in Black), Brett Tomberlin (Winchester) for Imagination Design Works and Thorsten Schumacher and Lars Sylvest (Death Sentence, Dylan Dog) for Rocket Science.
Thanks to a brief description given by The Hollywood Reporter – “The upcoming film will center on photographers Erin and Patrick, who are brought aboard the vessel with their young son Lukas and unleash a series of events that entwines their family with the ship’s dark past…as the terror unfolds around the family they begin to realize there is more to this sumptuous ocean liner than meets the eye: its remarkable legacy masking violent secrets. As Erin and Patrick uncover the haunted layers that the vast ship contains, it becomes increasingly clear that there is only one way out for them — to go even deeper.”
Note this is the first time a horror genre film has been filmed on the actual real-life ship, So we can only hope for a behind the scenes documentary when real hauntings plagued the filming.
