AFM: Marton Csokas Joining Emilia Clarke in ‘Voice from the Stone’

Fresh from starring in “The Equalizer,” Marton Csokas has come on board Emilia Clarke’s supernatural thriller “Voice from the Stone.”

Sales-finance company 13 Films has signed on to co-finance and handle international sales and will introduce the title to foreign buyers at the upcoming American Film Market. Producers will retain U.S. rights.

Dean Zanuck and Stefano Gallini-Durante are producing and Eric D. Howell is directing from Andrew Shaw’s script, based on Silvio Raffo’s Italian-language novel “La Voce Della Pietra.”

Principal photography starts this month in Italy in Howell’s feature film directorial debut. Tannaz Anisi, president of 13 Films, is exec producing.

Clarke plays a solemn nurse drawn to aid a young boy named Jakob who has fallen silent since the untimely death of his mother nearly a year ago. The boy lives with his father (Csokas) in a massive stone manor in Tuscany and seems to be under the spell of a malevolent force trapped within the stone walls.

Clarke was attached to the project in June.

Zanuck and Gallini-Durante have been developing “Voice from the Stone” since 2009, when Hideo Nakata (“The Ring”) was attached to direct. Maggie Gyllenhaal came on board to star during Cannes in 2011.
