John Carpenter’s next horror project just got a whole lot hotter as Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies) will star opposite Amber Heard in The Ward, a psychological horror thriller that the legendary director is helming for Echo Lake Entertainment and A Bigger Boat. The story follows a girl (Heard) who is admitted to a psychiatric ward, meets other girls there with distinct personalities and discovers a mysterious girl haunting the halls at night. Panabaker plays a patient in the institution, a snobbish girl who flirts with orderlies and faces electroshock therapy. Mamie Gummer also has been cast as a patient. Michael and Shawn Rasmussen wrote the script, with revisions by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller.
