DEVRIM LINGNAU will shoot the UK gothic drama »CARMILLA« in East Sussex. The project is the debut feature of writer-director Emily Harris, who previously collaborated with Ate De Jong on Love Is Thicker Than Water in 2016. Jessica Raine (»Call The Midwife«), Tobias Menzies (»Outlander«, »Game Of Thrones«) and Hannah Rae (»Broadchurch«, »City Of Tiny Lights«) have boarded too. Producers are Lizzie Brown of Bird Flight Films and Emily Precious of Fred Films. Crew include Oscar-winning costume designer John Bright (»Sense And Sensibility«), alongside cinematographer Michael Wood and production designer Alexandra Walker.
Inspired by Sheridan Le Fanu’s 1872 novel of the same name, which is considered to be one of the earliest works of vampire fiction, »Carmilla« is a dark coming-of-age love story set in the 1780s.
