It’s been a couple years since we’ve heard a peep about Brad Anderson‘s (Session 9, The Machinist) new psychological horror movie Blood, which has Michelle Monaghan (“True Detective”) attached to star. Today brings some more info, plus a new plot synopsis.

For starters, Skeet Ulrich (Scream) will star alongside Monaghan in the horror movie, with the cast also including Finlay Wojtak-Hissong, June B.

Wilde, and Skylar Morgan Jones. In Blood, “As a six-year-old boy spirals into the depths of a mysterious illness, his mother discovers a disturbing cure, but to what extent will she go to keep her child alive?”. The script was written by Will Honley. Producers include Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas, Gary Levinsohn, and Billy Hines, with executive producers including Jean-Luc De Fanti, Alexis Varouxakis, Max Work, Steven Sims, Ryan Bartecki, Brad Anderson, and Daniel Bekerman.

Blood comes courtesy of Hercules Film Fund, Rhea Films, and H2L Media Group. Richard Armitage is set to star in “Damage,” a new Netflix series from Gaumont U.K. Armitage (“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”) will play William, a doctor who embarks on a passionate affair with his soon-to-be daughter in law, Anna (played by “Peaky Blinders” star Charlie Murphy.) .

Anna is already engaged to William’s son Martyn, played by “Miss Marvel’s” Rish Shah.

She fights to keep both relationships alive – one with Martyn and one with William – but it is inevitable that the truth will emerge and someone is going to get hurt.

In the meantime, William finds himself drawn into an obsessive spiral, unbeknown to his wife Ingrid (played by “Obi Wan Kenobi’s” Indira Varma.). Pippa Bennett-Warner (“Gangs of London”) is also set to join the cast as Peggy. “Damage” is based on Josephine Hart’s 1990s political novella about “erotic obsession and forbidden desire.”.

The screenplay is by Morgan Lloyd-Malcolm (“The Interrogation of Leo and Lisa”) and journalist turned scribe Benji Walters with Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa (“Good Vibrations,” “Ordinary Love”) directing.
