Aaron Paul and Emily Ratajkowski have signed on to star in the thriller WELCOME HOME for director George Ratliff, who previously dabbled with horror/thriller material with the 2007 film JOSHUA.

Paul has nearly twenty years of credits to his name. He played one of the rapists/murderers in the remake of THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, worked with Alexandre Aja on THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX, and brought fan favorite Jesse Pinkman to life on the television show Breaking Bad. Ratajkowski has been wracking up a good amount of credits in recent years, appearing in films like GONE GIRL and WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS, but is likely still best known as "The Girl from Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video".

In WELCOME HOME, Paul and Ratajkowski will be playing 

a couple who spends a weekend at a vacation rental home in the Italian countryside in an attempt to repair their relationship, but soon become victims of the homeowner's sinister plans.

The screenplay for the film was written by David Levinson. We'll have to wait and see what sort of "sinister plans" he came up with for the homeowner to carry out.

Voltage Pictures will be launching sales of WELCOME HOME at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. The movie is expected to start filming in Tuscany next month.

WELCOME HOME is being produced by Allan Mandelbaum, Tim White, and Trevor White, with Josh Bachove serving as co-producer.
