Director Nick Murphy made an impressive debut theatrical feature with his gothic horror film The Awakening (click here to read my review). Screen Daily reports that he’ll be making his follow-up with Blood, an adaptation of the Bill Gallagher BAFTA-nominated TV series Conviction. The plot centers on “two policemen who kill a murder suspect and are then plunged into chaos when they are forced to investigate their own crime.” Murphy has assembled a strong lead cast for the picture with Paul Bettany, Brian Cox, and Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire) set to star with Gallagher handling the screenplay. Filming is set to begin in the UK in January.
I’m hoping that The Awakening gets out in front of audiences sooner rather than later because Murphy is definitely a director to keep an eye on, and I’ll certainly be keeping Blood on my radar.
