Chris Smith Taking Over Black Death


Severance helmer replacing Sax

Director Geoff Sax is out and Christopher Smith is in on Black Death, a film reported at the beginning of the year and starring Lena Headey, Sean Bean and Rupert Friend. Smith’s credits include Creep and Severance. He recently wrapped the thriller Triangle with Melissa George.

Thanks to HanWay Films – the outfit handling international sales – we have an early piece of promote art below (thanks to the fellas as QuietEarth for pointing us in this direction). No word on why Sax dropped out of the film. However, he’s currently in production on a drama called Frankie and Alice at the moment.

Written by Dario Poloni, Black Death is set in an apocalyptic medieval world, this is the story of a band of brothers whose quest is to hunt down a necromancer against the backdrop of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England. A young monk is sent to investigate rumors of people being brought back to life, meanwhile a mercenary arrives in the same village. Against the backdrop of the peaceful village lies a pact with the forces of darkness, orchestrated by the village ruler.
