Dacre Montgomery, who made a splash as Billy Hargrove in Stranger Things, is set to star in Went Up The Hill, an upcoming supernatural horror film.
Montgomery will star opposite Vicky Krieps in the film. Krieps’ credits include Phantom Thread and M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.
According to Deadline, Went up The Hill “will chart how, after being abandoned as a child, Jack (Montgomery) ventures to remote New Zealand to attend the funeral of his estranged mother and there meets her grieving widow, Jill (Krieps). His search for answers becomes dangerous when his mother’s ghost returns to inhabit both Jack and Jill, using each of their bodies to speak to the other, and instigating a life-threatening nocturnal dance between the three of them.”
Samuel Van Grinsven is directing Went Up The Hill and co-wrote the script with Jory Anast. The film is currently in pre-production and is set to shoot in New Zealand.
