Netflix reveals first look at Eli horror feature directed by Ciarán Foy
Netflix has released a new poster and photo for their upcoming horror film Eli, starring Charlie Shotwell (All the Money in the World), Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Lili Taylor (The Conjuring), and Kelly Reilly (True Detective). You can check out the first look images now in the gallery below!
The story begins with a doctor who promises experimental medical treatments that can help the gravely ill Eli (Shotwell). But when he suddenly finds himself plagued by nightmarish experiences, Eli realizes the doctor may have ulterior motives.
Eli was co-written by David Chirchirillo (Cheap Thrills), Ian Goldberg (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and Richard Naing (Fear the Walking Dead). The horror feature was directed by Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2, Citadel).
The movie is produced by Jenny Hinkey, Trevor Macy, and John Zaozirny. David O’Leary serves as co-producer with Melinda Nishioka executive producing.
The movie was originally slated to be released by Paramount Pictures but was picked up by Netflix after the studio dropped the film. The script was first written by Chirchirillo, which made 2015’s Black List of quality scripts that didn’t have development deals. Later, Goldberg and Naing were brought aboard to rewrite Chirchirillo’s initial draft.
Eli will premiere on Netflix on October 18.
