Hollywood’s Catching Up with the Little Guys

Man it’s interesting how Hollywood works sometimes- a little buzz goes a long, long way. Recently a little independent film called The Bell Witch Haunting (official site) has been making the rounds (review coming soon) and has been generating some buzz- well the suits may have picked up on it, because a feature length film about the legend begins filming in Romania this week entitled An American Haunting. Read on for the story…Variety writes:

“Donald Sutherland, Sissy Spacek, James D’Arcy and Rachel Hurd-Wood will star in “An American Haunting,” a gothic ghost story that begins filming in Romania this week.

Written and directed by Courtney Solomon (“Dungeons & Dragons”), the film is based on events that took place in Tennessee during the early 1800s. Solomon adapted his screenplay from Brent Monahan’s book “The Bell Witch: An American Haunting.”
