Fresh off last year’s Hallmark Christmas movie The Christmas House, a personal favorite from last year’s holiday lineup, Jonathan Bennett has been set to star in a new horror movie titled The Bog, Deadline reports today, with Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars) also starring alongside Mark Ryder (Borgia), Timothy Murphy (Westworld) and Robert Clohessy (Blue Bloods).
Myles Clohessy is directing the film, which goes into production in October.
“Inspired by haunting true events, The Bog tells the story of two couples, led by a troubled Collette (Parrish), who intertwined through friendship, unknowing infidelity and a tragic family death, decide to take an epic hiking trip into the remote Scottish Highlands to get away from it all, reconnect and stay at one of the secluded ancient cottages that dot the area. What starts as the time of their lives—and a much-needed, doctor-requested couples retreat—quickly spirals out of control for the group of friends in the isolated, harrowing mountain territory.
“There, they find themselves terrorized by unknown locals and unbeknownst to them, are subjected to a thousand-year-old mystical hunting ritual.”
Phil Harrell and Emma Harrell wrote the script with Clohessy.
