Alan Rickman is set to join Olivia Cooke and Douglas Booth in the feature film THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM, a gothic murder mystery in the style of SE7EN and vein of THE WOMAN IN BLACK, reports Variety.

Scripted by KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE writer Jane Goldman, and adapted from Peter Ackyroyd’s novel “Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem”, the film is set to be directed by PAINLESS helmer Juan Carlos Medina and is set in...

...London in 1880. In the dangerous Limehouse district, a series of murders have shaken the community. So monstrous and ruthless are these crimes the press claim they’re the work of The Golem — a legendary creature from dark times…

Confronted by a murderer of a yet unknown kind and with no genuine leads, the police put the vastly experienced Detective Inspector Kildare on the case, a scapegoat for when the next victim surfaces.

Lionsgate Films has acquired U.K. and Irish distribution rights. HanWay Films has boarded worldwide sales rights. The film is produced by Number 9 Films Stephen Woolley (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE), Elizabeth Karlsen (“Carol”) and Joanna Laurie (HYENA).
