IT Star Sophia Lillis Set To Star in GRETAL AND HANSEL
IT star Sophia Lillis has jumped on board to take on the lead role in the upcoming film Gretel and Hansel, which is a reimagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale from Orion Pictures.
The story is described as being set “a long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside and focuses on a young girl who leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.”
Sounds like a it could be a fun and spooky horror thriller! The movie is being developed by writter and director Osgood Perkins, who wrote and directed the haunted-house horror movies The Blackcoat’s Daughter and I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House.
Lillis is a talented young actress and this should be a fun new project for her to be a part of. She will next reprise her Beverly Marsh role in It: Chapter 2 and is also set to star as the classic teen detective Nancy Drew in Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase.
Orion is prepping to start shooting the film in fall in Ireland.
