Stage and screen actor Romola Garai is set to make her feature directorial debut with a new horror film that will star Olivier Award winner Imelda Staunton, according to Deadline. The principal cast will also feature Carla Juri (Blade Runner 2049) and Alec Secareanu (God’s Own Country).

The yet-untitled movie, which is also scripted by Garai, is about a young refugee who falls in love with a woman seemingly enslaved by a demon. Production is scheduled for the fall.

Garai was seen in the West End last year in a starring turn in Helen Edmundson’s play Queen Anne, and Off-Broadway in Roundabout’s Indian Ink in 2014. On screen, she is a two-time Golden Globe nominee for her performances in The Hour and Emma, and has numerous film and television credits.

Staunton is a four-time Olivier winner and Oscar nominee. She was nominated for two 2018 Olivier Awards for her performances in Follies and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in London.
