Disney Star Also Moves into ‘Amityville’ Horror House!

Bella-Thorne-2

The floodgates have been opened for Amityville news this Sunday.

Bloody exclusively broke the news here that Maniac and P2‘s Franck Khalfoun would be directing the new Amityville Horror, while also sharing in a fresh story here that Jennifer Jason Leigh will star.

Our friends at TheWrap shared a fresh nugget of casting revealing that Disney Channel sensation Bella Thorn, pictured above, has also moved into the horror house! She will also soon be seen in Voltage Pictures’ thriller Home Invasion.

I’m told that Leigh will be playing Joan, a single mother raising three kids all on her own. The family move into the infamous “Amityville” house, only to learn that it has a very dark history.

It’s also looking as if the found-footage angle has been dropped from the film, to be distributed January 2, 2015 by TWC-Dimension.

    Bella (and possibly the script if it’s bad) might be the weak link in this movie. i’ve seen her former (just canceled) Disney show and she’s not a very good actress in that. but who knows? maybe she’ll surprise everyone. at least with Khalhoun & Jennifer Jason Leigh there’s a chance it will be good!

    While I’ve never seen Bella before, is argue that Jennifer will be the weak link here. She’s never been a particularly strong actress.

    Actually, I am interested to know what they do with this given the fact that there is no dad in the plot blurb above. Kids vs. psycho mom?

    @djblack1313 – I haven’t seen this kid’s Disney show, but my limited experience with them is that all the actors, young and old, are told to read things as exaggerated and broadly as possible, so I don’ know how accurate of a gauge their Disney work is.
