You want some advice? Never go tracing your families roots, especially when it involves a road trip. You just know that along the way you will either stop by some creepy gas-station attendant or there will be some crazy hitchhiker looking for a lift, and of course this will lead to your demise. Or you may just have a nice trip, but c’mon, when ever does a road-trip to the middle of nowhere ever turn out good?
Unfortunately we don;t have much to go on at this time, but according to the folks over at B-D, Justin Bartha (The Hangover) and Rachel Nichols (P2, Red Eye), have been cast in Omar Naim’s upcoming Canadian psychological thriller Becoming.
Synopsis: “Becoming’ is a dramatic supernatural thriller about Alex and Lisa, an ordinary couple who come face to face with an ancient evil. While on a road trip retracing family roots, Alex is gradually taken over by a malevolent entity, which slowly begins to replace his identity piece by piece. Though he still looks like the man she loves, this new Alex has dark and disturbing plans for Lisa, and will use her trust and love against her at every turn. By combining the naturalism of ‘Blue Valentine’ with the tension of ‘The Shining,’ ‘Becoming’ forges a new path for psychological horror.“
