A Prequel Is In The Works For 2009 Horror Movie Orphan
A prequel to the much-loved horror movie Orphan is in the works. Remember, the one about the creepy woman who pretends to be a little girl? Yeah, that one.
The prequel, written by David Coggeshall, sees Leena Klammer (Isabelle Fuhrman's character in the original film) escape from a Russian psychiatric facility and to the United States by impersonating 'Esther', the missing daughter of a rich family.
But her dastardly plot doesn't go as planned when she comes up against a resolute mother who will stop at nothing to protect her family.
This comes more than 10 years after the original movie hit cinemas. The 2009 film follows the story of a couple whose lives take a sinister turn when they adopt a 'little girl' from an orphanage.
Its synopsis reads: "Devastated by the loss of their unborn baby, Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) decide to adopt a child.
"At the orphanage, both feel drawn to a little girl (Fuhrman) named Esther, and soon the couple take their new daughter home. But when a dangerous series of events unfolds, Kate begins to suspect that there is something evil lurking behind the child's angelic exterior."

And if this wasn't enough horror-related nostalgia for you, then guess what, we have more.
Earlier this month, it was announced that plans were underway for a new Silent Hill movie.
It's been almost 15 years since the classic video game was adapted into a horror flick. And despite 2012's Silent Hill: Revelation - which was widely panned by viewers and critics alike - fans have been waiting patiently for the franchise's return.
Well, according to the director of the first film, Christophe Gans, a new movie is in the works.
Speaking to French site Allocine, the 59-year-old revealed that it was one of two projects he is working on.
He said: "I have two horror film projects with Victor Hadida. I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero (Fatal Frame.) The film will take place in Japan. I especially don't want to uproot the game from its Japanese haunted house setting.
"And we're also working on a new Silent Hill. The project will always be anchored in this atmosphere of a small American town, ravaged by Puritanism. I think it's time to make a new one."
