Check out the new Pearl poster below:
The character Pearl originally appeared in 2022’s horror film X, where she was also played by Goth, albeit in a ton of makeup to appear much older. In a post-credits scene of the film, a trailer for Pearl played, although the trailer hasn’t been released or included on any of the releases of the film.
Development for Pearl began during the production of X, with director Ti West writing the film while also filming X. Filming for Pearl took place in secret immediately following the completed photography of X, with both films being made back-to-back in New Zealand while X‘s cast and crew were on hand. Pearl is set in 1918 during World War I, and will explore Pearl’s backstory and how she comes to be the villain she is in X.
