Britannia premieres January 18 on Sky and NowTV




“Captain Fantastic” actor Charlie Shotwell is playing the titular role of a boy who moves into a “clean house.”

Stranger Things newcomer Sadie Sink and Kelly Reilly, who appeared in season two of True Detective, have joined Eli, a horror film from Paramount Pictures’ Paramount Players label.

Captain Fantastic actor Charlie Shotwell is playing the titular role of Eli in the project being directed by Ciaran Foy (Sinister 2).

The story centers on Eli, an 11-year-old who moves into a “clean house” to treat his autoimmune disorder. Unable to leave, Eli soon realizes that the house, and the doctor who runs it, are more sinister than they appear.

Sink will play an alluring local girl who befriends Eli and has a curious knowledge of what goes on inside the facility.

Sink, who starred as the title character is the Broadway revival of Annie, was one of the newcomers to the cast of the second season of Stranger Things, playing redhead May Mayfield. She also co-starred in the short-lived NBC series American Odyssey. She is repped by Paradigm and Mara Entertainment.

Reilly will play Eli’s devoted mother, who will give anything to protect and cure her only child.

The script by David Chirchirillo made the 2015 Black List and Blood List. It was revised by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing.

Trevor Macy is producing via his Intrepid Pictures banner, along with Bellevue Productions’ John Zaozirny. Matt Alvarez will executive produce, with Melinda Nishioka co-producing for Intrepid and David O’Leary co-producing for Bellevue.

Eli is due to begin shooting at the end of January 2018 in Atlanta. It has a Jan. 4, 2019, release date.

The day we’ve all been waiting for is here! Sky finally announced the premiere date for Britannia and as previously suspected, it’s a lot closer than you might think.

The entire nine part epic series will drop on Sky and NowTV on January 18, 2018! The announcement came alongside a brand new trailer:

I’ve also got screencaptures of Kelly as Kerra, Princess of Cantii from this new trailer now in the gallery.




Britannia, which marks the first co-production between Sky and Amazon U.S., is lined up for a World Premiere TV Screening at MIPCOM 2017.

The new original drama is written by Jez Butterworth. A nine-parter, the series stars Kelly Reilly (True Detective), David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Zoë Wanamaker (My Family), Nikolaj Lie Kaas (The Killing) and Eleanor Worthington-Cox (The Enfield Haunting). Britannia’s creators and key cast are slated to be in Cannes to promote the show.

Set in 43 AD, the drama follows the reluctant rise to power of Kerra (Reilly), the daughter of the King of the Cantii, and her arch-rival Queen Antedia (Wanamaker), who are forced to put their differences aside when the Romans invade Britannia. The series will air on Sky Atlantic in the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria, and will be available on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. in 2018. The international distribution rights (excluding the U.S.) are being handled by Sky Vision.

Jane Millichip, the managing director of Sky Vision, said: “Britannia is a fantastically cinematic drama, and its scale and high quality will transfer brilliantly to the big screen. We are very grateful to MIPCOM for awarding us the World Premiere TV Screening. Britannia is Sky’s most ambitious drama ever, taking over 5,500 hours to produce, and we look forward to sharing it with our international partners.”

“We’re delighted that Sky chose MIPCOM to debut this brand-new event series, which is sure to be one of the most highly anticipated shows among international buyers in Cannes,” said Laurine Garaude, the director of the TV division at Reed MIDEM, which organizes MIPCOM. “We look forward to welcoming the creators and talent involved in Britannia on the Croisette.”

Cannot wait to hear more from the event and hopefully there will also be some press photos to share.




Today we’re taking the time to wish Kelly a very happy 40th birthday!



We hope she has a wonderful year, it’s certainly going to be a busy one as Yellowstone begins production next month and with Britannia and 10×10 coming up in the future – we’re going to be seeing a lot of Kelly in the coming months.
