Martin Freeman to star in a film adaptation of Nyman & Dyson’s Ghost Stories


This is excellent news as I saw Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s Ghost Stories at the Liverpool Playhouse when it opened there. It was incredibly spooky and very clever. Nyman was on stage and Dyson was sat a couple of seats over from me and the whole audience jumped in all the right places.

Warp Films and Altitude Film Sales are working on the film adaptation. Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) and George MacKay (Pride)  will be joining Andy Nyman in the film version.

In Ghost Stories, Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology and arch-skeptic has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave.

His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet.

Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three unsolved cases that have shaken Cameron to his core.

As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last. Gradually, Goodman unearths a hidden truth more terrifying still, that will pull his life apart.

Mike Runagall, managing director of Altitude Film Sales, said “Having been totally captivated by the original stage show’s devilish plot and unique thrills, we are beyond excited to team-up with the filmmakers to bring this unforgettable, haunting and one of a kind supernatural thriller to audiences worldwide.”
