Haley Joel Osment goes back to the mystreious realm with I'll Follow You Down

No matter how hard you try to escape the depths of horror...it always drags you back into its steely death grip...

Just ask Haley Joel Osment, who, after a decade of trying to branch out from his seminal SIXTH SENSE role, has been lured back into the mysterious sci-fi realm with I'LL FOLLOW YOU DOWN. The one-time child actor has agreed to star in Richie Mehta film. Lee Kim will produce under his Resolute Films and Entertainment shingle.

Written by Mehta as well, the film follows the story of a scientist who mysteriously disappears after a business trip, only to have his son Erol, played by Osment, make an eerie discovery about his whereabouts, several years later.

About nabbing Haley for the gig, Kim had this to say:

“Richie has penned a script that tells an emotionally charged, thrilling story while staying true to the sci-fi genre...Our main challenge was to find the right actor to play the lead role of Erol – one that requires the perfect balance of innocence, honesty and intelligence; Haley provides just that.”

After doing a bunch of voice work for videogames the last five years, Osment also has the comedy SASSY PANTS and the thriller WAKE THE DEAD due this year.
