Heading to Cannes is Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost, a new animated ghostly comedy featuring the voices of Freddie Highmore (“Bates Motel”), Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake), Miranda Hart (Call The Midwife), Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, reports Variety.
Currently in pre-production, “the comedy follows the story of Sir Simon de Canterville, who has been haunting his ancestral home in rural England, Canterville Chase, for over 300 years. He has successfully scared off every previous tenant with ease and aplomb, up until the Otis family from America moves in.”
Giles New and Keiron Self are adapting the film, which will be helmed by Kim Burdon. It is produced by Robert Chandler and Gina Carter.
Content will be handling worldwide sales at Cannes.
