There’s been no end of films based on the Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde story written by Robert Louis Stephenson. The latest stars Eddie Izzard in the lead role with a modern day twist playing both Nina Jekyll and Rachel Hyde.
Dr. Nina Jekyll made herself a fortune in the pharmaceutical industry, rubbing shoulders with the elite and becoming a household name. But her success came at a cost, and after scandal forced her out of the spotlight she now lives in seclusion with her demons. In need of an assistant, Jekyll hires Rob – an ex-con straight out of rehab, trying to get back on his feet. However, it soon becomes clear that there are evil forces at play, and Rob’s wits are tested in a game of cat and mouse with a mysterious and manipulative entity.
We were lucky enough to speak to director Joe Stephenson and star Scott Chambers about Doctor Jekyll and got to ask them about the casting of the lead, improvising with Eddie Izzard, special make up effects and their own go-to horror films.
