The Starks have been reunited…sorta. Two of Game of Thrones’ most prominent actors, Kit Harington and Sophie Turner, are teaming up, not on one of the many HBO spinoffs of that hit show, but on something entirely different. Deadline reports Harington and Turner will star in The Dreadful, a gothic horror film directed by Lucky and V/H/S/85 segment director Natasha Kermani.
Written and directed by Kermani, The Dreadful is set in medieval England during the War of the Roses, and “follows Anne (Turner) and her mother-in-law Morwen, who live a solitary, harsh life on the outskirts of society. But when a man (Harington) from their past returns, he will set off a sequence of events that become a turning point for Anne.”
Turner is also a producer on the film, which is out to buyers now. She most recently starred in the miniseries The Staircase, and the Netflix dark comedy Do Revenge. Her role as Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix has largely been forgotten at this point, for good reason, mostly. Harington also has a Marvel connection, having appeared as Dane Whitman/Black Knight in Eternals. He recently had a role on the Apple TV+ series, Extrapolations.
