Eddie Izzard plays Dr. Nina Jekyll

The latest version of Dr Jeckyll brings a modern twist to this critically adored tale. Joe Stephenson directs it, and the film features a great cast, including Suzy Eddie Izzard, Lindsay Duncan, Scott Chambers, and Simon Callow. 

Dr Jeckyll is a modern interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Suzy Eddie Izzard plays Dr. Nina Jekyll, a recluse who finds friendship with her newly hired help, Rob (Scott Chambers). 

Rob, an ex-convict, takes the carer position to the infamous Nina Jekyll, but little does he know he’s part of an evil master plan devised by her alter ego, Rachel Hyde. 

An isolated mansion, a mysterious locked room, creepy corridors, a dusty cellar and a mad doctor…. what lengths will Rob go to satisfy his client’s weird wishes and his own ambitions for the daughter he has never even seen?

The screenplay is by Dan Kelly-Mulhern and is set to herald a new era for Hammer, founded in 1934.

Doctor Jekyll will be released exclusively in UK cinemas from 27 October 2023.
