Schitt’s Creek favourite Emily Hampshire has found her next movie project.
According to Deadline, she’s already shooting Bloody Hell in Canada alongside Maddie Ziegler (West Side Story) and director Molly McGlynn (Mary Goes Round).
Described as a coming-of-age ‘traumedy’, this one centres around 16-year-old Lindy (that’s Ziegler), who’s unexpectedly diagnosed with a reproductive condition, affecting her relationship with sex, womanhood and even her mum (Hampshire).

Bloody Hell was inspired by McGlynn’s own personal journey, after being diagnosed with MRKH (Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser) Syndrome in her teens.
Addressing the decision to turn her experiences into a semi-autobiographical story, the filmmaker commented: “It took me several years to scrape together the courage to write this script.
“I knew Maddie was the perfect person to capture the nuance and complexity of this confusing, emotionally overwhelming and in hindsight, absurd, time in my adolescent life.”
Supporting cast members include D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai (Reservation Dogs), Ki Griffin (Hollyoaks) and Djouliet Amara (Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between).

Circling back to the world of Schitt’s Creek, it seems inevitable that Hampshire will return as Stevie Budd sometime in the future, despite the series no longer airing.
Her co-star Dan Levy recently teased of a movie spin-off to People: “My hope is that one day we can all get together. I see these people all the time. We’re in constant contact with each other. So the love is there. The desire to work together is there, and the desire to tell more stories is there.
“I think it just comes down to making sure that it’s the right story to tell.”
Schitt’s Creek is streaming in its entirety on Netflix.
