Chrissy Metz to star in Signs meets Misery film The Will O Wisp

Chrissy Metz This Is Us

"Will-o'-the-wisp" is a term I have heard many times over the years, but I never looked into what exactly "will-o'-the-wisp" actually is. Now that writer/director Evan Cooper is making a psychological thriller titled THE WILL O WISP, I decided to finally find out what this thing is. 

Google gives the following definition: 

a phosphorescent light seen hovering or floating at night over marshy ground

Now that I know this, it makes sense that Cooper is using the term for the title of his film about 

a recently divorced Montana man and his dog, who are beckoned into the woods on their property after seeing strange lights.

Chrissy Metz, who you might know from the television series This Is Us or the Freak Show season of the American Horror Story anthology, is the first cast member to sign on for THE WILL O WISP. She will be playing "a nurse with a checkered past who works at the local assisted-living center."

Her character starts to seem a lot more interesting when you hear that this project is being described as "SIGNS meets MISERY". You don't want to get on the bad side of a nurse with a checkered past when MISERY is being referenced.

That's all the information currently available on THE WILL O WISP. We'll keep you updated as the project progresses.
