Tucker Tooley Entertainment and eOne have pulled off quite the coup in casting Gary Oldman in their upcoming supernatural thriller Mary.
The actor, whose performance as Sir Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour (2017) seems set to place him as a front-runner for the Best Actor category at the Oscars, will star in the movie that centres upon a struggling family who buy an old ship at auction with the hopes of transforming it into a charter business, only to discover the ship’s “horrifying secrets”.
Mary will be directed by ‘American Horror Story’ cinematographer turned director Michael Goi, and will work from a script by The Shallows screenwriter Anthony Jaswinski.
Jason Barhydt and Greg Renker will act as executive producers on the project alongside Oldman’s longtime producing partner Douglas Urbanski, with Tucker Tooley, Scott Lambert, Scott Lumpkin and Alexandra Milchan each acting as producers.
Production is set to begin in late September, though no release date has yet been set.
