Horror Channel’s FrightFest landed in London today, and they kicked things off with an announcement by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman that they’re taking their stage play Ghost Stories to the big screen.
Dyson (League of Gentlemen) and Nyman (who worked with Derren Brown) told the crowd at FrightFest that Ghost Stories will start shooting in October with the pair writing and directing, and Nyman starring alongside Paul Whitehouse (The Fast Show) and Martin Freeman (Captain America: Civil War). Not only that, but they showed a concept teaser trailer which featured Freeman doing the voice-over that starts the play.
Seen by over 350,000 people worldwide, Ghost Stories is truly an extraordinary theatrical experience. Written and directed by The League of Gentlemen’s master of the macabre, Jeremy Dyson, and Andy Nyman, co-creator and director of Derren Brown’s television and stage shows, Ghost Stories mixes the very best of theatre with the buzz of a thrill-ride, delivering something truly unique. With some new moments of shock, this show will make you laugh and scream in equal measure.
Ghost Stories will hit cinemas in 2017.
