Goldcrest has come on board to fully finance Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal’s first English-language film, psychological horror The Autopsy of Jane Doe, reports ScreenDaily.
“Set in a small-town, family-owned mortuary, the film follows father and son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim – a beautiful young “Jane Doe.”
As they attempt to figure out how she died and who she is, they discover increasingly bizarre clues, which hold the key to terrifying secrets.”
Based on an original screenplay by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is produced by Fred Berger (Taking Chance) and Eric Garcia (Matchstick Men) under their Impostor Pictures banner alongside Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh of 42 (Welcome to the Punch, Monsters: Dark Continent).
Goldcrest’s Nick Quested and Pascal Degove are serving as executive producers.
Production will take place in London this winter with casting underway.
