Just two weeks after signing on to star opposite Halle Berry in Brad Anderson’s thriller The Hive, Variety reports that Zombieland‘s Abigail Breslin has agreed to topline Copperheart Entertainment’s Haunter, a supernatural mystery that Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) will direct from a script by Brian King. Bloody Disgusting exclusively broke the news on the film back in January.
A reverse ghost story, “ ‘Haunter’ follows Lisa (Breslin), a teenage girl who died under sinister circumstances in 1986 along with her family. Trapped in their house together and unable to move on, Lisa must reach out from beyond the grave to help her present-day, living counterpart avoid the same fate she suffered.”
Steve Hoban and Mark Smith will produce for Copperheart, which previously produced Natali’s 2009 horror pic Splice.
Production is skedded to start mid-April in Toronto.
