A new psychological chiller called THE THREAD is currently nearing completion in London, following weeks of filming in India and also on the Isle of Man (an independent island located just East of England). The film stars BATMAN BEGINSí Linus Roache (pictured), Saffron (DEEP BLUE SEA) Burrows and the glamorous pop star Andrea Corr in the story of a London-based businessman named Ram (Roache) who suffers from bizarre visions and strange occurrences, which finally push him to the edge of sanity. Summoned back to India by his father, a holy man who is suffering from his own problems, Ram is unable to make it to his home country before his parentís unfortunate death. Mourning the loss of his dad, Ram becomes spooked by the sudden appearance of the dead man and also a shadowy and mysterious figure. This glimpse into the supernatural leads Ram and his wife Jenny, into a terrifying journey.
THE THREAD is directed by Mahesh Mathai, whose sole previous credit is the David Lynch-approved BHOPAL EXPRESS. At present, there is no news on when this independently funded Brit ghost story is likely to hit screens, but watch this space for details.
