In 2016’s The Shallows, Anthony Jaswinski penned a screenplay set in a picturesque cove along the coast of Mexico–with a ravenous shark thrown into the mix! In Mary, just acquired by RLJE Films, Jaswinski will take terror to the high seas in a psychological/supernatural horror movie set on a ship.

We don’t have a trailer to share yet, but here’s the scoop from this morning’s press release:

Written by Anthony Jaswinski (The Shallows) and directed by Michael Goi (American Horror Story), the film stars Academy Award Winner Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Emily Mortimer (Mary Poppins Returns), Owen Teague (IT), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Windows), Jennifer Esposito (Crash) and Stefanie Scott (Insidious The Last Key).  Mary will be released in theaters, On Demand and Digital HD on October 11, 2019.

“We couldn’t have asked for a more talented cast,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer for RLJE Films. “Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimer bring stellar performances.  The film will thrill audiences, keeping them at the edge of their seats.”

Synopsis:
In Mary, David (Oldman) is a struggling blue-collar captain looking to make a better life for his family. Strangely drawn to an abandoned ship named ‘Mary” that is up for auction, David impulsively buys the boat, believing it will be his family’s ticket to happiness and prosperity. But soon after they embark on their maiden journey, strange and frightening events begin to terrorize David and his family, causing them to turn on one another. With tensions high, the ship drifts off course, and it becomes horrifyingly clear that the family is being lured to an even greater evil waiting for them at sea.
