Production has wrapped on Blumhouse and The Safran Company’s American remake of the controversial French film Martyrs. Directed by the Goetz Brothers, the film is toplined by “True Blood” alumna Bailey Noble (pictured) and “Pretty Little Liar” Troian Bellisario.
Released in 2008 to critical acclaim, Martyrs centers on Anna, a severely traumatized child abuse survivor abducted by a secret society convinced they can reach God by beating the living shit out of her for about an hour of the film’s duration.
Noble, best known for playing Sheriff Andy Bellefleur’s half-human/half-faeire daughter Adilyn on HBO’s “True Blood,” plays the human punching bag named Anna. Mark L. Smith, the screenwriter behind Nimrod Antal’s underrated survival-frightener Vacancy, penned the script.
