It looks like Séana Kerslake has an extremely tough time of things in Lee Cronin's full-length debut...
Wildcard, the Dublin company who’ve previously handled the likes of The Secret Scripture and Cardboard Gangsters, have acquired the Irish distributions rights to Lee Cronin’s horror film, The Hole In The Ground.
Shot in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow, it stars Hot Press fave Séana Kerslake who received widespread acclaim for A Date With Mad Mary, Vikings man James Quinn Markey, James Cosmo who impressed in T2 Trainspotting, and Steve Wall of The Stunning fame.
“Trying to escape her broken past, Sarah O’Neill (Séana Kerslake) is building a new life on the fringes of a backwood rural town with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey),” we’re informed. “A terrifying encounter with a mysterious neighbour shatters her fragile security, throwing Sarah into a spiralling nightmare of paranoia and mistrust, as she tries to uncover if the disturbing changes in her little boy are connected to an ominous sinkhole buried deep in the forest that borders their home.”
The Hole In The Ground will hit screens in 2018. Ms. Kerslake also lines up alongside Emmet Kirwan in Dublin Old School, the dance music-inclined tale of a drug-fuelled lost weekend in the capital.
