It has been a rumor since April, but today we have confirmation: Maria Bello will tackle the lead role in the James Wan-produced haunted house thriller formerly known as HOUSE OF HORROR. (It is currently untitled.)
Bello, who also recently joined the revenge drama PRISONERS, will play a police psychologist. Here's the full synopsis:
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 departmentís 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 doesnít lie with any of the inhabitants, but with the house itself.
Dimension Films is producing the film, which is being helmed by Will Cannon from a script by Max La Bella. Shooting commences in Baton Rouge, LA, in January.
|Extra Tidbit:||Unfortunately, the lovely Ms. Bello will also be seen in GROWN UPS 2.|
