Georgie's back. And he's not alone.
With six seasons of the jailhouse drama/comedy ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK under her belt, actress Taylor Schilling is switching lanes and diving into Horror.
The Boston-born Golden Globe-nominated actress will star in THE PRODIGY, a new thriller from Director Nicholas McCarthy, who gave us 2014’s AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR. The film will also star Jackson Robert Scott, the young actor who last played Georgie, the tragic victim in last year’s massive hit, IT. He’ll play Taylor’s suffering son, Miles. Let’s hope he gets to keep both arms this time.
From the eerie trailer it seems the prodigy in question may be the prey of some sort of spiritual demon or other dark nastiness. THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK‘s Colm Feore, one of the best character actors out there, plays a Psychiatrist who wants to help get at the bottom of whatever is eating the young boy, maybe literally.
We’ll have to wait until 2019 for the answers when Orion Pictures releases the film on February 8th. Hold your kids close and enjoy the trailer below.
