1st Still, Mood Teaser, & Casting News Drop for the Upcoming Murkwood
The first news for the upcoming horror-thriller MURKWOOD has been released. MURKWOOD is written and directed by Alex Boutellier and will be filming in Switzerland. In casting news, Branko Tomovic (THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, WHITECHAPEL) has been cast in the lead role of “Lucian Thaler.” Ralph Ineson (GAME OF THRONES) is in talks to play the role of Pete Buck. Check out the plot crunch:
Career criminals Peter Buck, Eddie Coyne and Lucien Thaler kidnap the son of a prominent British politician from a Swiss boarding school. Hiding out in the Alps, the men wait for the ransom money. But when tragedy strikes, they end up trapped in a dark wood – held hostage by unseen forces. Hunted and desperate, the kidnappers realize that the worst evil does not lurk in the shadows of the night but in the darkness of their souls. And it is about to be unleashed…
Murkwood evokes the moody visuals of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” and combines them with the visceral scares of an ‘eco-horror’ movie like “Long Weekend”.
