Pete Doherty stars in trailer for new horror film 'The Second Coming' – watch

Film is based on WB Yeats' poem of the same name

Pete Doherty stars in the trailer for a new horror film titled The Second Coming Pt. 1. See above to watch.

The film, which claims to be inspired by WB Yeats' classic modernist poem of the same name, will feature seven people in seven stories focusing on seven different characters in different locations. The trailer includes shots of Doherty inside a flat interspersed with seemingly supernatural events happening elsewhere.

Directed and written by Richard Wolstencroft, the film co-stars Emma Eliza Regan, Michael Tierney, Michael Robartes, Kristen Condon, Kristen Lees and Kim Fowley. It is expected to be released this year (2014), although no firm release details have been announced so far.

Speaking to the Irish Post about the film and working with the Libertines singer, Regan said: "Well with regard to Pete… my lips are sealed. But I think he is a true talent, an original and a poetic soul."

Last week (May 2), Pete Doherty revealed that he and Carl Barât have spoken about the prospect of writing new songs together. The Libertines, who announced news of their reunion last month, will headline the British Summer Time festival at London's Hyde Park on July 5.
