    • In the spirit of Silence of the Lambs and Seven, and much-loved series CSI, comes a blistering new crime thriller franchise THORNE. Based on the bestselling novels by Mark Billingham, starring David Morrissey and Natascha McElhone alongside an all-star cast, the THORNE franchise is a startling new take on the detective story, destined to thrill and chill audiences in equal measure.
      At the heart of these gripping new films is Detective Inspector Tom Thorne, an iconic character that established Billingham’s detective thrillers well above the ranks of other British crime fiction. In THORNE, Billingham has created a complex and compelling character, scarred both inside and out by the cases of his past and whose headstrong investigations have won him few friends within the force.
      In THORNE: SLEEPYHEAD, Thorne’s latest case drags him back into the nightmares of his past as he heads up the investigation into a series of horrifying attacks on young women by a killer as sadistic as he is terrifying, whilst THORNE: SCAREDY CAT finds Thorne on the hunt for not one, but two serial killers, who seem to be working together but killing separately.
      Helping propel THORNE into what’s destined to be the most exciting new detective thriller franchise bar none, the hugely successful director Stephen Hopkins will helm SLEEPYHEAD and act as a key creative executive producer across SCAREDY CAT and all further films in the franchise. THORNE is original, thrilling, frightening, compelling and expertly crafted, and is an absolute must see for all detective story fans…
