James was subject to universe-building treatment as producer/director Winner and screenwriter Michael Hastings (Tom & Viv) piloted a prequel to The Innocents that would explore characters from the author’s “The Turn of the Screw,” but with amped-up sexuality and shocks. Suddenly orphaned Verna Harvey and Christopher Ellis, and governess Stephanie Beacham, are manipulated by their kinky Irish gardener—Marlon Brando!
