Netflix is gearing up to release The Ritual this February, starring Rafe Spall (The BFG), Robert James-Collier (Downtown Abbey), Arsher Ali (Four Lions), and Sam Troughton (The Hollow Crown).
David Bruckner directed the film which was written by BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Joe Barton (Humans, iBoy), based on Adam Nevill’s novel of the same name.
The film centers on four old friends from college who set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness after the death of their best friend. When a wrong turn leads them into the wilderness, part of a Norse Legend, they are stalked by something evil.
The Imaginarium and eOne produced and financed the film. Imaginarium’s Jonathan Cavendish developed the project and produced alongside Richard Holmes. Will Tennant and Phil Robertson are overseeing and serve as executive producers with Andy Serkis and Moonriver’s Xavier Marchand, and Lara Thompson.
Witness The Ritual on Netflix on February 9, 2018.
