Rickman, Cooke Join “Limehouse Golem”

Alan Rickman, Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel,” Ouija”) and Douglas Booth (“Jupiter Ascending,” “Great Expectations”) have boarded Juan Carlos Medina’s gothic murder mystery “The Limehouse Golem” at Lionsgate.

Jane Goldman has penned the adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s best-selling novel “Dan Leno And The Limehouse Golem” which is set in London in 1880.

A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times, a mythical Golem, must be responsible.

The tone is said to be akin to a mix of “Se7en” and “The Woman In Black”. Stephen Woolley, Elizabeth Karlsen and Joanna Laurie will produce.
