“Misfits” star Antonia Thomas has wrapped filming on what will be her next project – an indie feature film titled “Thea,” co-starring alongside Luke Norris and Eileen Davies in what is said to be a London-set supernatural thriller, directed by Nirpal Bhogal (“Sket”) and produced by Uzma Hasan.
The film follows young couple, played by Antonia Thomas and Luke Norris, whose lives are turned upside down when they experience supernatural evils while struggling with the birth of their first child.
More via press release: “THEA is an evocative horror about the reality of the supernatural world encroaching into our everyday lives, a young family forced to turn to the occult to save their daughter from the supernatural entities that plague her. Taking as its inspiration the seminal horror films of the 70s, it is a chilling insight into the sacrifices we must make when we bring a new life into this world. Charlie (Antonia Thomas) and James (Luke Norris) are just starting their lives together; young and in love, they’re relishing having no responsibilities, until Charlie discovers that she is pregnant. Into their world comes Thea; a beautiful little girl. But her arrival brings with it terrifying entities that threaten their newly formed family, things that are beyond their understanding. Panic stricken, the young parents enlist the help of James’ estranged father Alistair, a dilapidated would-be occultist whose obsession drove his family apart and led his son to despise him. He diagnoses Thea as a beacon – a child whose very presence attracts the attention of the supernatural creatures that surround us. Charlie and James realise that they must dedicate their lives to protecting their unplanned daughter. As Thea grows into a young girl, the once playful entities that crowd around her become increasingly violent, vying for her attention and threatening her innocence. With Alistair at a loss, he turns to Elizabeth, an occult practitioner of great power who teaches Thea to control, rather than be afraid, of the dark forces around her. Thea’s newfound confidence unleashes something far more malevolent and terrifying than they have ever encountered.”

Antonia Thomas has hinted at what to expect from her guest spot on The Musketeers.
The Scrotal Recall star will appear in series two of BBC One’s swashbuckling Sunday night series.
“I’ve always wanted to do a period drama,” she told Digital Spy. “I play a Spanish Moor and she’s on the run and been exiled from Spain.
“I get to do a bit of fighting, wear an awesome corset and I had a brilliant time! They have an absolute ball out there in Prague, it’s great.”
Thomas’s character Samara will be seen bonding with Porthos (Howard Charles) and is the daughter of the mysterious Tariq (Colin Salmon).
“He’s wicked,” she said of Salmon. “He’s so tall – I didn’t get the genes!”
The Musketeers will return to BBC One in 2015. Scrotal Recall begins tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.
Plans to make a movie version of the hit E4 series Misfits have finally been abandoned, RadioTimes.com understands.
A script for the big screen outing of the British drama – which centred on a group of teenage delinquents who acquired superhuman powers after a mysterious storm – had been written by the show’s creator Howard Overman.
Misfits began in 2009, with the final episode of series five airing on 11 December 2013. It won a number of awards including the Bafta best drama series prize in 2010.
The movie version was said to involve a variety of the characters who appeared in the five series, including the original line up of Antonia Thomas, Iwan Rheon, Lauren Socha, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Robert Sheehan.
However it is understood that the project will now not happen because of a number of issues, one of which is said to be cast availability.
Antonia Thomas, the actress who played Alisha Daniels in the first three series, told RadioTimes.com that she believed the project had been shelved.
She said: “There was all sorts of talk about it. We read scripts and I think it’s now not happening. I haven’t heard anything. I think it’s just difficult to get everybody together. Everybody is doing such different things. Maybe they think everybody has moved on, I don’t know. You never say never but I have not heard anything of it of late.
“It was a really cool script, kind of getting the old gang back together, it could have been a lot of fun.”
Colin Salmon (Die Another Day, Resident Evil) and Antonia Thomas (Misfits, The Deep) have been confirmed to guest star in the second series of The Musketeers on BBC One.
Colin will play Tariq, a mysterious interloper on the run from Spain, and Antonia will play his daughter Samara, a gutsy and resilient young woman whose life is put in danger when her father is exiled.
Executive producers, Adrian Hodges and Jessica Pope, said: “We’re excited to welcome an actor of Colin’s reputation to The Musketeers. He will bring wonderful charisma and sense of mystery to the role.
“We’ve also been aware for some time of Antonia’s wonderful work in films and TV series such as Sunshine On Leith and Misfits, among numerous others. She brings such intelligence and vibrancy to every role she plays and we are thrilled to have her as Samara.”
This episode is written by Lucy Catherine and Adrian Hodges and directed by Mark Jobst.
The first trailer for Scintilla was released not too long ago and features several scenes with Antonia. Check it out!
