Amanda Seyfried joins Kevin Bacon in David Koepp's You Should Have Left

Amanda Seyfried While We're Young

Just in time for the twentieth anniversary of STIR OF ECHOES, star Kevin Bacon is re-teaming with that film's writer/director David Koepp on a new genre project, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT. As the supernatural thriller heads toward production, another actor has now signed on for a lead role in the film.

Amanda Seyfried will be playing the wife of Bacon's character - and if Seyfried seems too young for him (she wasn't even born until the year between FOOTLOOSE and QUICKSILVER!), that seems to be the point. The synopsis even points out that she's his "younger wife".

Based on a novel by Daniel Kehlmann, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT tells the story of 

a screenwriter in a remote house in the Alps working on a sequel to his hit film along with his younger wife and a six-year-old. The writer begins to lose his bearings thanks to unexplained occurrences.

Coming to us from the folks at Blumhouse, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT is expected to start filming later this year. In the meantime, copies of Kehlmann's novel can be purchased at THIS LINK.
