Esther is back in upcoming prequel Orphan: First Kill, with Isabelle Fuhrman returning to play the character and William Brent Bell (The Boy, Separation) directing the new movie.
Orphan: First Kill has been acquired for release by Paramount, but we don’t yet have a release date at this time. It’s coming soon, however, as the official MPA rating is now in.
First Kill is rated “R” for…
“Bloody violence, language, and brief sexual content.”
For the sake of comparison, the first Orphan movie, released way back in 2009, was similarly rated “R,” for “disturbing violent content, some sexuality, and language.”
In Orphan: First Kill, “Leena Klammer (aka Esther) 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.”
David Coggeshall (“Scream”) wrote the prequel’s script.
Orphan writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick executive produces.
