Veronica Cartwright, who starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963’s The Birds, as well as Alien and Invasion of the Body Snatchers has joined the cast of MGM’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown, alongside Gary Cole and The Blair Witch Project‘s Joshua Leonard, pictured above, says Heat Vision Tuesday evening.

Addison Timlin is leading in the horror thriller being produced by Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum and being directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

The story centers on a rural Texarkana town that was stalked by a serial killer in 1946. The maniac was never caught and in 2013, he comes back.

Cartwright will play Timlin’s grandmother who is raising her after her parents die in a car accident. Cole is a deputy who is doggedly pursuing the killer while Leonard will play the deputy assigned to protect Timlin and her grandmother.

The movie shoots this month in Louisiana.

    Joshua Leonard you say? I’ll probably give this a watch. I don’t find the original to be a watchable film, but worst case scenario I waste 90 minutes of my life, could be worse.

      Oh, right… I forgot about to mention her! I was too busy gushing over Joshua Leonard whom I fell in love with July 30 1999, somewhere around 8:00 pm.
