A week and a half ago, we shared what appeared to be the first image of Isabelle Fuhrman from Orphan: First Kill – a prequel to the 2009 movie Orphan (watch it HERE). Yesterday, Fuhrman posted an Instagram story where she revealed that she had been sent the trailer for Orphan: First Kill, and said fans are going to freak out when they have a chance to see it. Now Signature Entertainment has unveiled the first poster for the film, and told their followers to “come back next week when all will be revealed.” So is the trailer for Orphan: First Kill going to be released next week? We hope so!

Directed by William Brent Bell from a screenplay by David Coggeshall, Orphan: First Kill has the following synopsis:

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.

Julia Stiles, Rossif Sutherland, Matthew Finlan, and Hiro Kanagawa are also in the cast. Fuhrman reprises the role of Leena / Esther, an adult serial killer from Estonia who was able to pass herself off as a 9 year old kid in the first Orphan. Looking 9 was easy for Fuhrman at the time because she was a child when she made that movie… but now she’s an adult, and the filmmakers had to try to figure out how to make her look like a kid again. 

Co-financed by eOne and Dark Castle, Orphan: First Kill was produced by James Tomlinson, with Dark Castle Entertainment’s Alex Mace, Hal Sadoff, and Ethan Erwin. Original Orphan screenwriter David Leslie Johnson served as executive producer alongside Daryl Katz, Chloe Katz, Paul Marcaccio, Victor Moyers and Kyle Irving. Kelly Gallagher and Robert Bell co-produced, with Jen Gorton and Josie Liang overseeing for eOne. Fuhrman also has an associate producer credit.

The film has been rated R for “bloody violence, language, and brief sexual content“.

Orphan: First Kill had been scheduled to be released in January of 2022 at one point. A new release date still hasn’t been announced since it missed that one. Are you looking forward to this movie? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
