'Severance' Director Takes on 'Black Death'   

November 28, 2008 I wasn't a fan of the British horror-comedy "Severance." But now the director, Christopher Smith, is set to replace Geoff Sax as helmer of "Black Death," one of the more interesting medieval fear films being produced.

Set to star Sean Bean and Lena Headley, the film is set in Medieval England during the Black Death. In this apocalyptic world, filled with fear and superstition, a young monk called Osmund is charged with leading a fearsome knight, Ulric (Sean Bean) and his group of mercenaries to a remote marsh. Their quest is to hunt down a necromancer - someone able to bring the dead back to life. Torn between his love of God and the love of a young woman, Osmund discovers the necromancer, a mysterious beauty called Langiva. After Langiva reveals her Satanic identity and offers Osmund his heart's desire, the horror of his real journey begins.
