The Autopsy of Jane Doe is the English-language debut of Norwegian horror director André Øvredal (Troll Hunter). Watch the intriguing trailer for the coroner horror that will be released on December 21.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe stars Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox as father-and-son coroners who experience supernatural phenomena while examining the body of an unidentified woman (Olwen Kelly).
Here is some trivia for the movie: Martin Sheen was initially cast as Tommy but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Øvredal said that Kelly had the most difficult role in the film (she played the corpse). Kelly was also the first person interviewed for the role. Further interviews were performed afterward, but Øvredal said they he instantly knew she was right for the role. One of the reasons she was selected was her knowledge of yoga. This helped her control her body and breathing.
