Some early sales art has rolled out for the Lena Headey-starring adaptation of Clive Barker’s JACQUELINE ESS which follows the story of a woman who, in her thirst for change, achieves the ability to transform people’s bodies at will. Although I'm unfamiliar with Barker's story, I'm thinking we're in for a treat with this one because you really can't go wrong with a deadly duo like Headey and the great Clive Barker!
Jovanka Vuckovic will make her feature debut. Her credits include the short film THE CAPTURED BIRD from exec producer Guillermo del Toro, and the all-female horror anthology XX.
It originally appeared in Barker’s “Books of Blood” anthologies, which also included the stories that were basis for the horror films LORD OF ILLUSIONS and CANDYMAN. “Lena Headey is a marvelous performer with an incredible presence,” Clive Barker said. “As far as I’m concerned, there is no better choice of actress for the role of Jacqueline. Her beauty and authority will carry the day.”
Producing duties will go to Raven Banner Entertaintment and Barker’s Seraphim Films as Raven Banner will be selling the film, set to go into production late this year, at Cannes.
