“Orphan” was stylish horror movie from the 2000s with one of the best twists in a film of the decade.
William Brent Bell, director of The Boy and the upcoming Brahams: The Boy 2, is set to direct the pic, which is titled Esther. The movie will explore the origin story of the murderous faux-child.
THR is reporting that William Brent Bell will direct an Orphan prequel called Esther. Here are the details:
The new film tells the origin story of underaged psychopath Lena Klammer, the terrifying orphan of the original film. In the prequel, from a script written by David Coggeshall (Prey), Lena successfully escapes from a Russian psychiatric facility and makes it to America by impersonating “Esther,” the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But Lena’s daring escape pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.
The original film starred Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman, C. C. H. Pounder and Jimmy Bennett. The plot centers on a couple who, after the death of their unborn child, adopt a mysterious nine-year-old girl.
