Dev Patel has signed on to star alongside Rosy McEwen in an upcoming horror film, titled Rabbit Trap.
If reports are to be believed, Rabbit Trap is set in 1973 and will star Patel and McEwen as Darcy and Daphne Davenport, married musicians who relocate from London to an isolated cottage in Wales to record their new album.
The project has wrapped up filming in Wales, with E Bryn Chainey serving as the writer and director of the film.
It is produced by Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah’s SpectreVision, Lawrence Inglee, Elisa Lleras, Alex Ashworth, and Sean Marley of Mad As Birds.
Dev Patel, Wiser Film’s Benjamin Kramer, Carte Blanche’s Kyle Stroud, Tom Ogden, Bankside Films’ Stephen Kelliher, and Sophie Green will executive produce.
British actor Patel, who made his TV debut on the long-running teen drama Skins, but went on to garner global fame with Danny Boyle’s Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, has several other exciting projects in the pipeline.
He will next be seen in the action film Monkey Man, which also marks his directorial debut.
