For decades, everyone believes the hauntings of The Queen Mary, a historic cruise ship now docked as a tourist attraction in Long Beach, Calif.
Now the ghost stories of The Queen Mary come to screen as part of the horror film trilogy from Rocket Science, Imagination Design Works, and White Horse Pictures.
Alice Eve (Belgravia, Star Trek) signed on to star in the first film of the trilogy with Gary Shore (Dracula Untold) in the director’s chair.
The storyline is currently under wraps, but the pic heads into pre-production this month. Stephen Oliver, Tom Vaughan, and Gary Shore wrote the screenplay.
The ocean liner drew more than two million visitors each year to walk on the decks and explore the rooms of a ship larger than the Titanic. In a Halloween tradition, The Queen Mary offered several walking tours that tell ghost stories of spirits wandering the hallways and deaths in the machine room.
It’s quite possible these stories may be part of the screenplay. However, ghost stories cannot truly be proven.
“I’m fascinated, obsessed, and disturbed by this ship—there’s something very dark and human about her. It’s a stylistic tightrope between reverence and horror,” stated director Gary Shore.
No release date is given at this time.
