Variety reports that production is now underway on Woken, an Irish horror film starring Erin Kellyman (pictured above in The Green Knight).
The plot of Woken will place on a remote island in the North Sea and is “set against a post-apocalyptic scenario in which the isle provides a safe haven from a pandemic that has decimated earth. The pic sees the protagonist Anna (Kellyman) wake up pregnant and unable to remember who her husband is. Nor does Anna recognise Helen and Peter who are supposedly helping her get her health back. Disbelief in what she is being told leads to a horrible revelation and Anna having to contend with existential issues brought on by man’s destruction of the planet.”
Alan Friel is helming Woken, making his feature directorial debut. Maxine Peake (Gwen) also stars.
