Dracula Untold director Gary Shore has come attached to direct Queen Mary, a long-in-the-works horror movie inspired by stories of hauntings on the famed ocean liner that is now permanently docked in Long Beach, CA. Rocket Science has come aboard board to fully finance and rep worldwide distribution beginning next month at the European Film market in Berlin.
The film will be shot onboard the Queen Mary, part of a license deal. The iconic ship that launched in 1934 sees 2 million visitors each year drawn by its history and legends. The project was developed by Winchester producer Brett Tomberlin.
White Horse Pictures’ Nigel Sinclair and Nicholas Ferrall are producing with Tomberlin and Mali Elfman via Imagination Design Works and Thorsten Schumacher and Lars Sylvest for Rocket Science. Tobin Armbrust will executive produce with White Horse’s Cassidy Hartmann and IDW’s Mark Tomberlin. Andy Trapani, Brian Gilbert and Steve Sheldon of Epic Entertainment Group will also exec produce.
