EXCLUSIVE: After starring together across all eight seasons of HBO’s hugely popular fantasy series Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner and Kit Harington are set to reunite on The Dreadful, a Gothic horror film launching sales at EFM through UTA Independent Film Group and Film Bridge International.

But when a man (Harington) from their past returns, he will set off a sequence of events that become a turning point for Anne.
