“The Limehouse Golem” Trailer Puts Bill Nighy On the Case to Find a Killer (Video)


RLJ Entertainment

Gothic thrillers set in Victorian England are not a film genre we see very much of these days, but anyone even remotely interested in Jack the Ripper and his ilk will be excited to watch the first trailer for , the adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 murder mystery novel, Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem.

Adapted by — whom we hope to have an interview with sometime very soon — the movie, directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless), stars as Scotland Yard detective John Kildare, who thinks he’s been set up as a scapegoat when he’s put on the case of a brutal serial killer known as “The Limehouse Golem,” who leaves messages using his victim’s blood.  Kildare enlists  the help of a witness to one of the murders, played by Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), as he explores one possible suspect, a musical star named Dan Leno (Douglas Booth).

The Limehouse Golem will be released by RLJ Entertainment on September 8 in select cities and on demand. It will open in the UK, Ireland and Germany one week earlier.
