    PRAGUE: Petr Jákl's horror movie Ghoul will have its world premiere in 2D and 3D in the Czech Republic on 26 February 2015. It is a highly anticipated event as Jákl’s 2010 début feature, Kajínek produced by J.B.J. Film Production, had the biggest opening weekend in the country’s history.

    A US. company Genesy is producing. According to Praguepost.com, the film’s executive producers are Rob Cohen, who directed the first Fast and Furious and shot part of xXx in Prague, Joe Lynch and Luke Rivett. The main characters are played by American actors Jennifer Armour, Jeremy Isabella and Paul S. Tracey. The international premiere will take place in Los Angeles.

    The project took four years to complete. Petr Jákl is currently working on Warrior of God, a biopic of a national hero Jan Žižka produced by Three Brothers Production.
