Depending how you look at things, the horror genre is either where a career starts, or sometimes ends. In Kim Basinger’s career, it could be close to the end. Bansinger, who hasn’t done much since 8 Mile and the lousy horror flick Bless the Child, has now joined the cast of a new supernatural thriller entitled Possession. Read on for details.
Moviehole writes, “Comeback queen Kim Basinger is tipped for the lead role in Possession, a new supernatural thriller to be directed by Stuart Baird .
In the film, Basinger – next in the film Cellular – would play Alex, the attractive mother of a boy who tragically dies in a car crash. After his bereavement, she starts to have some rather freakish psychic experiences.
Unable to call on anyone else, Alex seeks the help of a medium, but they refuse to continue, terrified of something – but unwilling to say of what. By this stage, the dead son is more and more present, pleading “Help me, Mother”. Alex comes to the grasp that she has to dig up her son’s past and find out what it could be that he?s referring to.
The film is based on a book of the same name by author Peter James. It’s believed Hayden Christensen is in talks for the role of the dead son, Fabian Hightower, and Colin Firth has also been contacted about playing a role.
“It’s an excellent script – I believe the actors that have been contacted about it are strongly considering it”, says scooper, Richard. “They hope to have it shooting Before Christmas”.
The film is from Darclight Films, a genre extension of Arclight Films. The label’s other films in production include “Lord of War” starring Nicolas Cage and Ethan Hawke, and Richard Sheppard’s “The Matador.”
