'Orphans: First Kill' trailer: Isabel Fuhrman betrays a family in killer prequel origin story
More than a decade later and 'The Orphan' has been adopted for a prequel.
The 2009 horror film starred Isabel Fuhrman as the titular sociopathic orphan Lena, who after escaping from an orphanage sets out to torture a family and seduce her adoptive father.
While everyone thought Lena was nine, it was revealed that she was secretly a 33-year-old woman with a medical condition that made her look like a child. And yes, this movie is as amazing as it sounds.
Now, Lena finally gets her origin story thanks to the upcoming prequel film "Orphan: First Kill."
It is directed by William Brent Bell ("The Boy") from a script by David Cogeshall. The film hits theaters, digital and streaming on Paramount+ on August 19.
"First Kill" turns its attention to Lena, with original actress Fuhrman reprising her role.
An official synopsis reads, "After escaping from an Estonian psychiatric facility, Lina comes to America impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy Connecticut 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.
