Variety reports that Natalia Dyer (“Hannah Montana”) is set to join Giorgio Serafini’s supernatural thriller The Healer with is already starring Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Joel Courtney (Super 8) and James Le Gros (“Justified”). The picture is set to begin filming next week in North Carolina.
Per Variety, Courtney and Fuhrman “star as teenage twins who go on a camping trip with their ailing father (Le Gros), only to become lost in a haunted forest. Dyer will play a mysterious being sent to protect Courtney’s character from the various creatures that are out to destroy him.”
The film is being produced by Giuseppe Pedersoli and Susan Johnson through Perdersoli’s Italy-based Smile Prods.
I’m just surprised this thing is an original script and not based on a book of any kind! Doesn’t this sound like something that would be based on a pre-existing property? It’ll be nice (depending on how it all turns out) to have something that sounds this dark and fantasy-ish come from an original source.
