First Look at Sean Bean and Christopher Smith’s Black Death

I’m still anxiously awaiting British director Christopher Smith’s “Triangle” with Melissa George, one of those movies with a killer premise, but until that movie is finally released, Smith has already moved on to a period/horror movie called “Black Death”. The film stars Sean Bean and Carice van Houten (who has apparently replaced Lena Headey since we last reported on the movie) and is set in medieval England, with the plot revolving around the bubonic plague and a small town that may or may not have made a pact with the devil.

Set during the time of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England, a young monk is tasked with learning the truth about reports of people being brought back to life, a mission that pulls him toward a village ruler who has made a dark pact with evil forces.

Starring Sean Bean, Carice van Houten, Eddie Redmayne, Kimberley Nixon, Tim McInnerny, John Lynch , Andy Nyman, Johnny Harris, Tygo Gernandt, Marianne Graffam, Emun Elliot, and Jamie Ballard. Christopher Smith directs from a script by Dario Poloni.
