In Esther, Lena Klammer orchestrates a brilliant escape from a Russian psychiatric facility and travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But Lena’s new life as “Esther” comes with an unexpected wrinkle and pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.

Dark Castle Entertainment’s Alex Mace, Hal Sadoff, and Ethan Erwin will produce along with James Tomlinson. David Leslie Johnson will executive produce. Jen Gorton and Josie Liang will oversee the project for eOne.

The first Orphan film follows a husband and wife who in the wake of losing their baby, adopt a nine-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be. The Warner Bros./Dark Castle horror movie was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starred Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, and Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther.
