Alice Eve (“Belgravia”, Star Trek Beyond) has signed to star in THE QUEEN MARY, the first in a trilogy of highly anticipated feature horror films inspired by the hauntings on-board the infamous ocean liner. Gary Shore (Dracula Untold) will direct off of a screenplay written by Stephen Oliver, Tom Vaughan, and Gary Shore. Developed and produced by Brett Tomberlin of Imagination Design Works, along with Nigel Sinclair and Nicholas Ferrall of White Horse Pictures (The Woman in Black, The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, Let Me In, End of Watch), Thorsten Schumacher and Lars Sylvest for Rocket Science (Resistance) and Jason Newmark and Laurie Cook of Newscope.
Alice Eve most recently starred in Julian Fellowes’ “Downtown Abbey” follow up “Belgravia” and is currently shooting “The Power” for Amazon.
Located in the dock at Long Beach, Calif, the multi-storied ocean liner, named Time Magazine’s most haunted place in the world, receives two million visitors each year, drawn by its amazing history and legend. As this writer can tell you, the stories are varied and have inspired haunt-filled shenanigans for years.
“We were immediately obsessed with Gary’s intelligent and twisted multi-film take on a great American legend and could not be more excited working with an extremely gifted actor in bringing this story to audiences around the world,” said Tomberlin.
Gary Shore added, “I’m fascinated, obsessed, and disturbed by this ship – there’s something very dark and human about her. It’s a stylistic tightrope between reverence and horror.”
In 2014, Gary Shore made his feature film debut with the horror fantasy epic Dracula Untold, for Universal Pictures. The film was a global success amassing $215M at the worldwide box office, hitting number one in over thirty countries.
Tobin Armbrust will executive produce together with White Horse’s Cassidy Hartmann. Andy Trapani, Brian Gilbert, and Steve Sheldon of Epic Entertainment Group will also serve as Executive Producers. White Horse Pictures’ Jeanne Elfant Festa will co-executive produce. Tom Vaughan will co-produce. Mali Elfman is producing alongside Mark Tomberlin and Jordan Rambis who are executive producing as part of Imagination Design Works. Rocket Science is on board to fully finance and represent worldwide distribution rights.
Eve is represented by Independent Talent Group, CAA, and Silver Lining Entertainment. Shore is represented by WME, 42 and Sloane, Offer, Weber, and Dern. Vaughan is repped by Mark Hartogsohn and Danny Toth and The Gersh Agency, and Kailey Marsh at Brillstein Partners. Attorney Cliff Lo and Alexa Pagonas of Michael Black Management negotiated the Queen Mary rights deal on behalf of Imagination Design Works.
