The Mist and Endangered star Thomas Jane will star in The Veil, the latest micro-budget horror film from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse that has Phil Joanou on board to direct, THR reports.
“The story springs from the real-world headlines of religious cults and mass suicides. With Veil, it begins thirty years ago, when members of a religious cult known as Heaven’s Veil take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened remains buried deep in the memory of the sole survivor, a five-year-old girl, who returns to the compound with a documentary crew as an adult. They soon discover something that is far more terrifying than anything they could have imagined.“
Robert Ben Garant penned Veil, who is a co-creator of the comedy show “Reno 911!”, and also wrote Lionsgate’s Jessabelle.
Joanou is a video director who directed the Kim Basinger-Richard Gere erotic thriller Final Analysis but most recently teamed up with Jane to make the wildly popular short “The Punisher: Dirty Laundry,” an unauthorized take on the Marvel vigilante character.
The plan is to shoot this in April. Universal will distribute.
