U.K. sales and finance banner Intandem Films (Mortis Rex, Gallowwalker, Devil’s Plaground) is looking to spook buyers by backing British thriller Ghost of Slaughterford while also repping it at this year’s EFM in Berlin. The thriller is being executive produced by genre fav Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday, Centurion) and will be directed by Ian D. Fleming, who was Marshall’s second-unit director on his upcoming sword and sandal slasher Centurion. The script details the story of a recently widowed novelist who retreats to a rented mansion in the village of Slaughterford to compose a new novel. She is met by local residents, who all warn her against staying in the house, but she resolves to stay before encountering a ghost. But the locals become the ones to fear. The movie is still in the early stages but is expected to roll before the cameras in June.
