Martin Freeman to star in big-screen adaptation of Ghost Stories
Martin Freeman is to lead a big-screen adaptation of hit play Ghost Stories.
According to Screen International, the Sherlock star will lead the production, which will be overseen by The League Of Gentlemen's Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, who also put the play together.
Nyman will also reprise his role from the stage production, with George McKay also in the cast.
The story follows Phillip Goodman, a professor of psychology and arch-skeptic who has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave and discovers that his mentor Charles Cameron, a TV parapsychologist who went missing 15 years before, is alive and wants to meet.
When the pair do meet he tells Goodman he needs to find a rational explanation for three unsolved cases that have shaken Cameron to his core. He then meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening than the last.
The film will shoot in September and will be released into cinemas in 2017.
