John Boyega working on new movie project.
Following the successful release of his first film as a producer, Pacific Rim: Uprising, British-Nigerian actor, John Boyega is coming hard.
The new project is an upcoming UK fantasy-horror, A Spriggan.
In British folklore, spriggans are spirits related to the trolls of Scandinavia.
They are described 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 grow in size.
However, talking about the project, Boyega said:
“I’m really excited to be joining A Spriggan and the team behind it.
In my producing projects,
I’m looking for filmmaker-driven, world-building, cinematic pieces,
and have found in Josephine Rose another producer who shares that creative vision and commercial ambition.
We’re looking forward to working with Keir Burrows to explore the monsters of real-life
through a dark, twisted, fairy-tale world of the spriggans.”
