‘The Conjuring’ Star Spooked By ‘Sinister 2’ Director’s ‘Eli’

Lili Taylor in New Line Cinema's The Conjuring

Lili Taylor, who was just seen in Leatherface as the infamous slasher’s mother, Verna, has come aboard Paramount Players’ inaugural feature, Eli, a horror film from Sinister 2 director Ciaran Foy, Deadline reports.

The pic stars Charlie Shotwell as Eli, young boy who undergoes treatment for his rare disease in a secluded clinic, which becomes a haunted prison. Taylor, who also starred in James Wan The Conjuring, as well as The Haunting (1999), will play Dr. Isabella Horn, the “immunologist” who treats Eli.

The story is based on David Chirchirillo’s 2015 Black List script of the same name with revisions from Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing.

Trevor Macy produces via his Intrepid banner, along with Bellevue Productions’ John Zaozirny. Matt Alvarez will serve as executive producer.

The film is slated for release January 4, 2019.

      Took the exact words out of my mouth! Shit was f**king atrocious!

  • Necro

    Well he better come with one hell of a marketing ploy cuz hearing “from the director of Sinister 2” isn’t a good sell for me! And for a number of other fans as well I’m assuming.
