Affinity International has boarded sales rights heading into Cannes to The Great Ghost Rescue, set to begin eight weeks of principal photography in the UK and Hungary next week. Yann Samuell will direct David Solomons’ adaptation of the novel by Eva Ibbotson. Jason Isaacs (the Harry Potter films), Kevin McKidd (Dog Soldiers, Hannibal Rising) and Emma Fielding (“The Ghost Squad”) all star. The cast also includes Georgia Groome, Steven Mackintosh and newcomer Toby Hall, who plays a small ghost whose family has been ousted from their home. The family unites with other spirits in a bid to find a sanctuary, but in the process the tide of opinion turns against them.
