The story revolves around a murder onboard the famous train of a rather nasty American tycoon. Belgian detective Poirot must figure out who is responsible before the train, currently stuck in the snow, is freed and allows for the potential suspects to disembark. The answer, which ties back to a famous child abduction case, is more complicated than he could have ever thought.
A large ensemble of A-lst stars are expected to be a part of the cast. The work was previous adapted onto a multiple Oscar-nominated film in 1974 with Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Michael York.

The story of a suburban couple’s standoff with new tenants in the apartment below them marks the feature film debut of David Farr. The British playwright and theater director is best known for his work with the Royal Shakespeare Company and for penning the script for Joe Wright’s thriller “Hanna.”
“The Ones Below” pays homage to the more paranoid entries in Roman Polanski’s oeuvre as it depicts the tragic consequences of a drunken dinner party. It debuted at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
“David Farr has concocted an incredibly satisfying and clever suspense thriller evocative of classics like ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Fatal Attraction,'” Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said in a statement.

Jokers, circus masters and demonic dolls. Which TV characters terrify you? Den Of Geek asked its writers that very question…
The subconscious is a terrible place; dark, mysterious and peopled by spectres from the past. As a bit of a laugh then, we sent our writers journeying into theirs and asked them to drag out any TV terrors they found lurking in the shadows.
Some television fears had been ensconced there since childhood, others were more recent tenants. Some were morally terrifying; human beings with icy hearts capable of atrocities, others were simply… atrocities.
Join us as we count down in order of terror from the sort-of-creepy to the downright terrifying, the 50 TV characters that, for whatever reason, give our writers chills. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, so feel free to fill in gaps by adding your own peculiar television nightmares below…

Most female characters in film succumb to the Devil. They are used as vessels or conduits for the Anti-Christ, lesser demons or the grandiose ideas of an occult. More often than not- they are chased, seduced or beaten into submission by satanic happenings. But some of these women do display degrees of ingenuity, agency, and physical prowess in their battle against coercion and the corruption of souls. Ranked from weakest characterization to strongest, the following list discusses the faculties that these women retain in the face of evil. (Minor spoilers ahead).
Lisa Reiner in Lisa and the Devil (1973)
Lisa (Elke Sommer) is overtaken by the spirit of a long deceased woman named Elena and the Devil all at once. Trapped deep in her mind, we hardly know Lisa outside of her light, carefree existence as an American tourist right before her possession. Purely a vessel for the malevolent temptation of »

Rain came down hard on Friday, Oct. 9, in New York and with it a deluge of hungry fans waiting to see their favorite characters from AMC’s “The Walking Dead” at iconic Madison Square Garden, nearly filling the entire arena and aligning perfectly with New York Comic-Con happening just blocks away.
In the lobby areas, fans were greeted with rolling behind-the-scenes clips, a life-size Daryl Dixon with his motorcycle, a replica of The Governor’s human head aquarium and best of all, walkers milling about the crowd scaring unsuspecting fans. Those brave enough stopped to take selfies with the “creatures.” Several fans dressed up as zombies, favorite characters and their own interpretations of horror.

There won't be a third season of Extant but this isn't the end of Halle Berry's relationship with CBS. The summer series has been cancelled but Berry is now executive producing a legal drama that's in development for the network.
Extant, began when astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) returned to Earth after a year-long solo mission in outer space. Her reunion with her family is thrown into turmoil when it's learned that she's pregnant. For season two, the cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Pierce Gagnon, Grace Gummer, and David Morrissey.
The first season of Extant underperformed for the network and averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.15 million viewers. They brought it back but a lot of changes were made to the series. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to help. The second season, which concluded last month, averaged a 0.7 in the demo »
Much like, say, Game of Thrones, AMC and the creative team implemented various changes in the transition from one medium to another when adapting Robert Kirkman’s comic juggernaut, The Walking Dead. Without straying too far into spoiler territory, arguably one of the more prominent plotlines that was subject to the editing scissors revolved around one Rick Grimes; though if Andrew Lincoln had his way, the network’s interpretation would have remained true to the source material.
We’re referring to Rick’s lost hand, of course. Upon his encounter with the Governor – portrayed by David Morrissey in AMC’s series – the weathered survivor is tortured by the demented leader, culminating in him cutting off Rick’s hand. Initially, though, Lincoln petitioned for the show’s writing team to incorporate the defining encounter into season 3, though the financial reality of rendering a stump for The Walking Dead‘s lead character was simply asking too much. »

Perhaps aware that the comparisons to “Rosemary’s Baby” will arrive from the start, playwright and theatre director David Farr, making his feature film debut, acknowledges the allusions to Roman Polanski’s picture from the first frames. Our first look of Clémence Poésy in the film bears a similar fragility to Mia Farrow, and the score by Adem Ilhan (“In The Loop”) evokes lullabye-style tones not unlike Krzysztof Komeda’s work on Polanski’s picture. However, Farr doesn’t simply trod over similar ground of its predecessor, but offers an intriguing proposition: what if Rosemary Woodhouse became a mother to a perfectly healthy baby, but was driven mad not by a satanic cult, but by “The Ones Below”? Kate (Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) are the picture of a perfect couple. They each have successful careers, a lovely London flat, and a baby on the way. However, their little »

Martin McDonagh is one of the most exciting voices to have emerged in film in the last decade or so. A veteran playwright behind the likes of “The Pillowman” and “The Cripple Of Inishmaan,” McDonagh won an Oscar for his short film “Six Shooter,” and followed up with the beloved, soulful crime comedy “In Bruges.” It’s been three years since McDonagh’s second feature “Seven Psychopaths,” but it looks like the writer-director is heading back to the screen in the near future. In an interview with The Guardian to promote his new play “Hangman,” which stars David Morrissey and is about to open in London, McDonagh says that “Fargo” Oscar-winner Frances McDormand is set to star in his next film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” “It’s about a 50-year-old woman,” McDonagh says, “whose daughter is murdered, and she goes to war with the police in her home town »

Changeling Chronicles: Farr’s Eerie Debut a Duel of Deserving Motherhood
Screenwriter and playwright David Farr makes his directorial debut with The Ones Below, a psychological quartet examining class issues, motherhood as a rite of passage, and the vulnerability of guilt. Tonally comparable to Polanski’s trio of horrific happenings in urban apartments, Farr channels the innate awkwardness of adult interactions and the unnamed tensions of familial competitions and contrived intermingling. As a genre film, the narrative plays out with almost disappointing predictability. But under the guise of a socioeconomic thriller operating as a nightmare of the privileged, Farr manages a striking portrait of the perverse relationship of building family vs. building community.
Kate (Clemence Poesy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) have been happily married for quite some time and are finally expecting their first child, the perfect addition to their life in the comfortably affluent suburbs of London. New »
