Alice Eve has signed on to play the lead in The Queen Mary, the first in a planned trilogy of horror movies inspired by the supposedly real-life hauntings on board the ocean liner of the title.
Gary Shore (Dracula Untold) is set to direct, and also co-wrote the screenplay with Stephen Oliver and Tom Vaughan.
Specific plot details are unavailable for now, but the story is inspired by the unexplained events that supposedly took place on the Queen Mary, which was named Time Magazine’s most haunted place in the world. The ship is now permanently docked in Long Beach, CA, where it reportedly receives two million visitors each year.
“We were immediately obsessed with Gary’s intelligent and twisted multi-film take on a great American legend and could not be more excited working with an extremely gifted actor in bringing this story to audiences around the world,” said prodiver Marc Tomberlin.
"I’m fascinated, obsessed and disturbed by this ship," added Shore. "There’s something very dark and human about her. It’s a stylistic tightrope between reverence and horror.”
Eve is generally viewed as one of the few highlights of the second season of Marvel's Iron Fist, in which she played the personality disorder-afflicted "Typhoid" Mary Walker. More recently, she starred in Julian Fellowes Downtown Abbey follow-up, Belgravia, and is currently shooting Amazon's sci-fi thriller, The Power.
