Jeffrey Dean Morgan Opens Lionsgate’s ‘Dibbuk Box’

Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Losers, Watchmen, Jonah Hex, The Resident) is toplining Lions-gate’s horror thriller Dibbuk Box, with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert producing via their Ghost House Pictures shingle. Lionsgate has already staked a claim to the Halloween frame with Dibbuk Box, which is set for domestic release October 28. Lionsgate has released a Saw offering around Halloween for the past seven years. Danish director Ole Bornedal (Just Another Love Story, The Substitute) is directing from a script — inspired by true events — by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (Boogeyman, Knowing, Poltergeist). Morgan will star as a recently divorced father whose youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter’s behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk — a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.
