Just yesterday it was announced that Maria Bello was going to star in Prisoners. Today B-D has learned that she will now join the cast of James Wan’s new “untitled” thriller. It was previously called House of Horror. Wan is going to produce with Will Canon directing.
Max La Bella penned the script from an original idea of Wan’s. “The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre: five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home. Fresh on the scene, detective Mark Lewis and the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello), question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying, and the suspect claims the responsibility doesn’t lie with any of the inhabitants, but with the house itself.”
Shooting begins January 2013 in Baton Rouge, LA and the film will be released by Dimension Films.
