Esther is back again to creep everyone the hell out. This time around Orphan is receiving the prequel treatment with Orphan: First Kill. With the new film comes a new home for distribution as well. This time around instead of being released at Warner Bros. like the first film, this film will be released at Paramount. The change, may reflect a new way of the films release. We have seen a ton of films going from theatrical to at home releases. So, it wouldn’t surprise us if the film ends up releasing via Paramount’s streaming service.
Once again Isabelle Fuhrman will pull off the look of being the insane little maniac by use of all sorts of on screen magic. Forced perspective, make-up and prosthetics and of course just good old acting. A lot of the look and feel of Esther comes from Fuhrman’s ability to channel a child’s demeanor. After all, she is playing a older woman pretending to be a child.
Orphan: First Kill synopsis goes like this:
Leena Klammer orchestrates a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility and travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But Leena’s new life as “Esther” comes with an unexpected wrinkle and pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.
Orphan: The First Kill stars Isabelle Fuhrman and Stiles are joined in the cast by Rossif Sutherland, Matthew Finlan and Hiro Kanagawa.
