Lin Shaye and Rory Culkin join Thomas Dekker’s Jack Goes Home

Last Updated on July 22, 2021


Thomas Dekker’s directorial effort, JACK GOES HOME, has added a couple of familiar faces to its cast. Lin Shaye – the unlikeliest box office star in recent memory thanks to the INSIDIOUS franchise – and Rory Culkin have both joined JACK, which is already set to star Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed and Daveigh Chase.

Culkin takes on the lead role of Jack…

an educated and well versed magazine editor living in LA. He is hit hard by the news of his father’s death in a violent and horrific car crash, which his mother (Shaye) has survived. He returns to his hometown of Denver to nurse his mother through her physical and emotional injuries. There he uncovers long buried secrets and lies within his family history, his parents, his friends and his very identity, fueled by madness, sexuality, hauntings and violence.

Robertson is co-starring as Jack’s pregnant fiancé, while Chase plays Jack’s best friend, and Reed Chase’s girlfriend.

Production on JACK starts this week in Kingston, NY. This actually isn’t Dekker’s directorial debut; he helmed WHORE in 2008. Who knew?
