Katee Sackhoff, currently in Toronto starring in the Mike Flanagan-directed Midnight Madness Section pic Oculus, has signed on to Flanagan’s next film, Somnia, Deadline reports.
“Somnia is described as a haunting, emotionally absorbing horror film about an orphaned child whose dreams — and nightmares — manifest physically as he sleeps. The film explores the enduring bonds between parent and child and is punctuated by sequences of intense, visceral terror that only a child’s imagination could conjure.”
That pic begins production later this fall, with Focus Features International handling international sales on the psychological horror film scripted by Flanagan and Jeff Howard. Trevor Macy is producing through Intrepid Pictures banner with William D. Johnson and Sam Englebardt of Demarest Films. Demarest will co-finance with MICA Entertainment. Mali Elfman is exec producer.
Sackhoff also stars with Vin Diesel in the weekend’s top grossing film Riddick. She also starred in White Noise 2 and The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia.
