Back in January we exclusively broke the news on a new project out of Blumhouse (The Lords of Salem, Insidious, Paranormal Activity) that’s set up over at Lionsgate entitled Jessabelle. We revealed that Saw VI and Saw 3D director Kevin Greutert is attached to direct the supernatural tale that was penned by Robert Ben Garant, known from TV’s “Reno 911!”.
Variety reports today that Aussie thesp Sarah Snook (pictured below) and indie stalwart Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) are set to star with lensing to begin April 2. Snook will play the terrified protag, while Webber will play her childhood friend who helps her uncover the truth about her family.
The project is “about a girl who is forced to return to her father’s home in Louisiana when a car accident leaves her without the use of both her legs. What she finds there is a mystery surrounding her own birth and an angry ghost (named Jessabelle) that seems determined to destroy her.“
