UK based Hammer Film Productions continues it's revival with the start of it's Ireland shoot for their first proper feature movie in over 30 years, 'The Wake Wood'. Since Hammer's second life they have produced the internet movie 'Beyond the Rave' and have optioned the remake rights to the vampire flick 'Let the Right One In'.
But let's get back to the 'The Wake Wood'...here's the synopsis:
"Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice – their only child – at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur, the village’s leader, a far bigger question looms – what will they do when it’s time for Alice to go back?"
David Keating is at the helm for the 'The Wake Wood' and as previously stated the shoot has begun in Ireland. Aiden Gillen, Timothy Spall and Eva Birthistle star.
