Star Trek Into Darkness and Belgravia’s Alice Eve is set to star in The Queen Mary, a horror from director Gary Shore (Dracula Untold) which is intended as the first in a trilogy of films inspired by the hauntings on-board the infamous ocean liner.
“I’m fascinated, obsessed and disturbed by this ship – there’s something very dark and human about her,” said Shore, who is directing the film from a script he’s written with Stephen Oliver and Tom Vaughan. “It’s a stylistic tightrope between reverence and horror.”
“We were immediately obsessed with Gary’s intelligent and twisted multi-film take on a great American legend and could not be more excited working with an extremely gifted actor in bringing this story to audiences around the world,” added Brett Tomberlin, whose Imagination Design Works is producing the movie with White Horse Pictures (The Woman in Black) and Rocket Science (Resistance).
The RMS Queen Mary is a retired British cruise liner which is now moored in a dock at Long Beach, California where she serves as a tourist attraction, and was also named by Tim Magazine as the most haunted place in the world.
