Following her hugely impressive breakout role in The Witch, Anya Taylor-Joy has been in high demand. As well as playing the title role in upcoming Ridley Scott-produced sci-fi chiller Morgan, she will soon be seen in Barack Obama biopic Barry and M. Night Shyamalan’s latest, Split. The latest flick to bag Taylor-Joy is Lionsgate’s psychological thriller, Marrowbone.
Marrowbone is the feature directorial debut of Sergio G. Sánchez, who scripted 2007’s The Orphanage. It tells the story of a young man and his three younger siblings who keep their mother’s death a secret in order to stay together. Hiding from the world in their farm manor, they soon become plagued by a malevolent presence in the house.
Everest’s Mia Goth co-stars along with George MacKay (Pride, 11.22.63) and Charlie Heaton (Shut In, Stranger Things) in the film, which is being executive produced by The Orphanage director J.A. Bayona. Bayona also directed The Impossible, which Sánchez co-wrote. Belen Atienza is producing, having recently worked with Bayona on his upcoming A Monster Calls.
With such names attached both in front of and behind the camera, Marrowbone has got to be one to keep an eye on, and we’ll be here to keep you updated.
