Ghost Stories heads for Yorkshire shoot

Martin FreemanWarp Films’ big-screen adaptation of Ghost Stories will film in Yorkshire in the autumn. 

The feature is based on the supernatural stage production by Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson about a psychology professor who received a letter seemingly from beyond the grave. The play opened at the Liverpool Playhouse in 2010 and later transferred to the West End for a year. 

The audiences were asked not to reveal much about the production so as to avoid spoilers – instead the marketing materials showed the shocked reactions of the theatregoers as the show unfolded. 

Nyman and Dyson will direct the film version from their own screenplay. Nyman will also star along with Martin Freeman. 

Details of other key personnel including the producers, casting director and line producer (from 19 August) can be found on Production Intelligence along with the likely shooting schedule. Non-subscribers can click here for a free online demo. 

Warp Films is busy as ever with a burgeoning development slate of films, including Idris Elba’s feature directorial debut, Yardie, and The Death and Life of John F Donovan, a starry Canadian co-production with Kit Harington, Natalie Portman, Jessica Chastain and Susan Sarandon.
