“Game Of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has joined Mama, a horror project at Universal being directed by Andres Muschietti and executive produced by Guillermo Del Toro.
The film itself is an extrapolation from Muschietti’s short of the same name from 2008 with Neil Cross (“Luther”) adapting the material from Muschietti’s original script, a collaboration with his sister Barbara.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “The movie tells the story of a couple – Chastain and Coster-Waldau – who take in their long-lost young nieces and nephews. The kids were found after living in the forest for five years but now murderous events begin to unfold and it becomes clear that a supernatural force is intent on claiming the kids.”
The movie starts shooting in Toronto on October 3rd.
