John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) is broadening his skill base this time executive producing a new UK Horror Fantasy A Spriggan.
A Spriggan follows a recently widowed mother who returns to her father’s isolated hotel only to find a sinister folklore presence haunting the land. In UK folklore, Spriggans were depicted as spirits related to the trolls of Scandinavia. They were often characterized as grotesquely ugly, wizened old men with large child-like heads. Although small, they were often considered to be the ghosts of giants, with the ability to swell to far greater size. The character has become the subject of a host of manga series in Japan.
Keir Burrows will write and direct with Josephine Rose set to produce.
