“Limehouse Golem” Set For September Release

RLJ Entertainment has scored the U.S. rights to the Bill Nighy and Olivia Cooke-led period horror thriller “The Limehouse Golem”.

Penned by Jane Goldman (“X-Men: First Class,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service”), Nighy stars as Inspector John Kildare who has been assigned the case of a serial killer stalking Victorian London nearly a decade before Jack the Ripper.

He soon meets a young songstress (Olivia Cooke) sentenced to death for the murder of her husband, who may hold the secrets to solving the grisly mystery.

Douglas Booth, Sam Reid, and Eddie Marsan also star in the Juan Carlos Medina-directed film which will hit both theatrical and On Demand on September 8th, just a week after its UK release.
