Jeffrey Dean Morgan is set to star in a horror film called Shrine that starts filming in February. This film is produced by Sam Raimi, the creator of the Evil Dead series.
The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan will begin filming a new horror film called Shrine in February. This film is produced by Sam Raimi, the man known for creating the cult horror series, Evil Dead. This film will be an adaptation of the novel of the same title by James Herbert.
Shrine, the novel, is about a deaf-mute girl who encounters a vision of a lady in white and is suddenly cured. After she is cured she can also perform miracles. Of course this could be a feel good novel with this young girl performing miracles and such but, since this is categorized as a horror novel we can all assume that isn’t the case.
In the film, Morgan is set to portray the main character who is a disgraced journalist who is trying to resurrect his career. When he stumbles upon what seems to be divine miracles and starts to look into the further, he discovers these miracles have a much darker source.
It will be interesting to see how they adapt the novel into the film. Jordana Brewster (Fast and Furious) will star opposite Morgan in this film. Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, Snake Eyes) will write and direct this film and it will be his directorial debut.
Morgan shared this tweet saying, “Fantastic Script. Can’t wait”
Morgan is currently best known as Negan on AMCs series The Walking Dead which is in it’s 10th Season. But he is no stranger to the big screen, he stared in 2012s horror film The Possession and his most recent film was in Rampage along side Dwayne Johnson.
Negan, Daryl, Carol and all our favorite Walking Dead characters will return to AMC on Sunday, February 23, for the back half of season 10.
