Game of Thrones Stars Reunite for Chilling Gothic Horror “The Dreadful”

Sophie Turner and Kit Harington, fan-favorite alums of the global phenomenon “Game of Thrones,” are set to reunite for The Dreadful, a chilling Gothic horror film. This exciting reunion is their first project since the epic fantasy series concluded in 2019.

A Haunting Tale Set in Turbulent Times:

Deadline nabbed the exclusive and reports that the movie is written and directed by Natasha Kermani (Lucky, V/H/S/85). The Dreadful unfolds against the backdrop of the War of the Roses, a period of civil war and political turmoil in 15th-century England. Turner portrays Anne, a young woman living a secluded life with her mother-in-law Morwen on the fringes of society. However, their isolated existence is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious man from their past, played by Harington. This unexpected encounter sets off a chain of events that will forever alter Anne’s life.

A Talented Team Behind the Camera:

Kermani, a rising talent in the horror genre, brings her distinct stylistic vision to the film. She draws upon her experience directing segments in Shudder’s acclaimed anthology V/H/S/85 and helming the chilling SXSW drama Lucky.

The production team assembled to bring The Dreadful to life boasts impressive credentials. Producers include Luke Daniels (Redwire Pictures/Tunnel), Patrick Muldoon and Patrick Hibler (Storyboard Media), Lucas Jarach, and Greg Lauritano (Black Magic). Film Bridge International handles foreign sales, while UTA Independent Film Group manages domestic distribution.

A Thrilling Reunion for Devoted Fans:

For years, Turner and Harington captivated audiences as Sansa Stark and Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones.” Their on-screen chemistry and individual performances garnered much acclaim, including Emmy nominations. Their reunion in The Dreadful will excite fans who are eager to see them collaborate again.

Adding to the Anticipation:

Turner’s recent credits include Netflix’s dark comedy Do Revenge and the HBO Max miniseries The Staircase. Harington also starred in Apple TV+’s sci-fi series “Extrapolations and the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Eternals. Both actors continue to demonstrate their versatility and talent, adding anticipation to their upcoming venture into Gothic horror.

The Dreadful is launching sales at the European Film Market, generating buzz and promising a captivating exploration of suspense, mystery, and dark secrets. We’ll keep you posted as more details surface.
