Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton will star in supernatural thriller The Awakening, which will be the feature directorial debut of UK TV director Nick Murphy.
Set in post-World War I England in 1921, the film follows a skeptical woman who travels to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumors of an apparent haunting. Just when she thinks she has debunked the ghost theory, she has a chilling spectral encounter which defies all her rational beliefs.
Murphy co-wrote the film with Stephen Volk. Shooting is scheduled to start in June.
