Last Update: 12 Feb 2008
On February 2, 2008, the Hollywood Reporter wrote that Lena Headey, Sean
Bean and Rupert Friend had signed up to star in director Geoff Sax's
supernatural chiller "Black Death" from production banner Ecosse Films.
Set in an apocalyptic medieval world, "Death" details the story of a band of
brothers whose quest is to hunt down a necromancer against the backdrop
of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England.
Friend will play a young monk sent to investigate rumors of people being
brought back to life, while Bean plays a mercenary priest who arrives in the
same village. Against the backdrop of the peaceful village lies a pact with
the forces of darkness, orchestrated by the village ruler (Headey).
The gothic horror will be produced by Ecosse Films co-chiefs Robert
Bernstein and Douglas Rae and co-produced by Jens Meurer ("Black Book")
of Egoli Tossell. Penned by Dario Poloni, the project is scheduled to
shoot on location in Germany and the U.K.
As of February 3, 2008, this project was still listed as in Pre-Production.
Additionally, official sources indicated to The Compleat on 12 February 2008
that Sean was not yet confirmed in the film.
