Pic is co-production with Size 9 Productions

Vertigo Films is producing what it claims will be the U.K.’s first 3-D horror pic, “Elfie Hopkins and the Gammons.”

Project, a co-production with Size 9 Prods., will star Jaime Winstone as a teen misfit and aspiring detective who lives in a rural village. Her suspicions are aroused when a mysterious family, the Gammons, move into her neighborhood.

Ryan Andrews, who co-wrote the script with Riyad Barmania, will direct. Size 9’s Michael Wiggs and Steve Matthews will produce.

Pic, which will be set and shot in Wales, will start lensing this winter.

Budget details were not released.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be working at the forefront of new 3-D technology, which doesn’t have to be the preserve of big-budget movies,” Matthews said.
