Hall, West and Staunton to Star in The Awakening


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.
