A new thriller titled Hallow Road is now in production. Shot in Ireland and the Czech Republic, the picture is based on a script penned by William Gillies (Clergymen). The project began shooting in Greystones, County Wicklow, earlier this month, and has since continued production in Prague. Deadline first broke the news.
In detail, the story of Hallow Road follows two parents who receive a distressing late-night phone call from their daughter after she caused a tragic car accident. Starring are Rosamund Pike (Saltburn [+see also:

British-Iranian filmmaker Babak Anvari is attached to direct. The helmer is best known for directing the horror flicks Under the Shadow [+see also:

The film, released on Netflix on 31 August 2022, zoomed in on a young graffiti artist who discovers a shocking secret, putting him and the ones closest to him in danger.
Hallow Road is being produced by Lucan Toh for Two & Two Pictures (UK/USA) with Ian Henry for London Film & TV (UK) and Richard Bolger for Hail Mary Pictures (Ireland). The project was commissioned and developed by London Film & TV, and is benefiting from co-financing by XYZ Films (USA) and Screen Ireland.
