Fans of "Game of Thrones" are getting excited after it was announced that Sophie Turner and Kit Harington will appear on screen together once more, but this time in the spooky settings of a Gothic horror story, "The Dreadful." The pair, formerly widely known for their iconic roles as Sansa Stark and Jon Snow, will be departing from the high-fantasy sets of Westeros into the violent history of the Wars of the Roses, to spin a new twist into their on-screen partnership.

It was confirmed that "The Dreadful" will be containing some sort of interesting mystery about the character. Details have been under wraps. The film, which is helmed by Natasha Kermani and scripted by Elias, is rooted against the bleak and tempestuous period backdrop of 15th-century England that promises to thrill the audiences not just with the historical gravitas but also for the bone-chilling suspense in the narrative.

The Dreadful Reunion

Turner plays Anne, a woman who is living cold and off the grid with her mother-in-law until a familiar face from Anne's past reappears and their quiet life is turned topsy-turvy, hurtling them on an amazing adventure.

The project marks a major re-teaming of Turner and Harington since "Game of Thrones" ended in 2019. Turner has since starred in such films as "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" and "Knives Out," while Harington took a brief break from the screen before returning to the stage in London's West End.

"People celebrated the great on-screen chemistry from when they both acted in the series, Sansa and Jon Snow, which has been one of the highlights of the series, and have been looking forward to their most recent collaboration in a darker, more mysterious genre.

Director Natasha Kermani, who is bound to collaborate with Turner and Harington, has brought out her enthusiasm in the portrayal of new characters acted by the two charming and yet enigmatic stars. Although specifics on the timeline for the beginning of production and airing of "The Dreadful" are also being kept under wraps, this show has already attracted attention from the fans and industry analysts alike, who have been looking out for performances from this great duo in an action-packed story wrapped in mystery and history.
