Julia Stiles to lead new prequel to hit horror Orphan
Julia Stiles is to star in a new prequel to hit horror, Orphan.
The film, which is titled Orphan: First Kill, sees star Isabelle Fuhrman return to play the role of Esther.
Released in 2009, Orphan followed a couple who, after the death of their unborn child, adopt a mysterious nine-year-old girl.
Initially, they fall in love with the well-educated orphan, but, after a series of incidents, they change their mind and begin to investigate her past, with unbelievable consequences...
William Brent Bell, who oversaw creepy chiller The Boy, directs, working from a script from David Coggeshall.
In the prequel, we look set to follow a young girl called Leena Klammer who orchestrates a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility and travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family.
Re-branding herself as Esther, her life suddenly comes with an unexpected wrinkle and pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.
