Gearing up for a new genre film is Thomas Jane (THE MIST) as he's set to direct as well as star in WET HOUSE. Bloody Disgusting reports that Jane will work with screenwriter Jack Reher once again on the upcoming horror flick. So what exactly is a WET HOUSE? Reher explains:
These places are popping up all over the United States. Kind of creepy. People go there by their own admission when they give up on life and their addictions. By means of drinking or drugs, late-stage users go to a Wet House when all hope is lost. Then they die…
The film goes a little something like this:
It's an elevated genre supernatural thriller and is loosely based on Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story “The Signal-Man.” A doctor treats a patient that checks in there after a horrific car accident and meets another resident that predicts tragic things that haven’t happened yet.. Slowly the doctor loses grip on his sanity in the Wet House and becomes haunted by something sinister.
That is some pretty disturbing stuff right there but no doubt a good set up for a horror film as you can expect the tone of WET HOUSE to be along the lines of JACOB'S LADDER meets SECRET WINDOW. AKA, it's going to rape your mind.
WET HOUSE sounds like a pretty wicked project and one to definitely keep an eye on.
Laurie Holden starred alongside Thomas Jane in THE MIST
