She’s been edging towards the idea for several years, crafting shorts and working alongside other half Neil Marshall on his films, but now Axelle Carolyn is ready to take up the megaphone for her first feature length project, locking in a deal to direct Soulmate from her own script.
With Marshall aboard to executive produce, Carolyn will direct the tale of a woman who decides to stay in a remote cottage after a failed suicide attempt.
While getting away from everyone, she discovers that a ghost haunts the place. But instead of running and screaming and never returning, she makes the unusual choice to stay, hoping that she’ll find some comfort in the supernatural entity.
Anna Walton, Tom Wisdom, Clare Higgins, Nick Brimble and Emma Cleasby are all signed on to the cast, and Carolyn will start the cameras running this month.
While she hasn’t directed a full film before, Carolyn has plenty of experience with shorts, and has acted in a number of films, including Marshall’s Doomsday and Centurion.
