Martin Freeman | Martin Freeman to star in horror film Queen of Bones

Martin Freeman starred in the horror movie “Queen of Bones”.

The 50-year-old actor was chosen to direct the film alongside Julia Butters, Jacob Tremblay and Taylor Schilling.

The film has entered production in Canada and is directed by Robert Budreau from a screenplay by Michael Burgner. Appian Way, Lumanity Productions and Productivity Media are all developing the image.

“Queen of Bones” tells the story of twin brothers Lily (Butters) and Sam (Tremblay) who live in an isolated house with their widowed father Malcolm (Freeman) in 1930s Oregon.

When Lily and Sam find an Icelandic spell book in the cellar, the couple begin to suspect a connection between their mother’s death and dark forces in the woods.

They then embark on a dangerous mission to force their father and his friend, Ida May (Schilling), to reveal the truth about his death.

Budreau said: “I’m thrilled to be working with such a stellar cast to bring this incredible Depression-era folk horror storyline to life. And I’m also thrilled to be collaborating with Appian Way and my former partners at Productivity. Media.”

Producer William G. Santor added, “We are so happy to be back in business with Robert as director on another film for Productivity Media.

“He has a great creative voice, and we are thrilled to be on this journey with him and our award-winning, collaborative partners at Appian Way.”

Martin is known for his roles in ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Love Actually’ trilogy and he has revealed he would “consider” directing a film.

He said: “It’s something I would consider. I think about it. I change with it, really. Sometimes when I’m on set and I see what a director is doing, I look at him and I say, “Yeah, I could do it. I would agree with this part. “
