Another asylum-based horror pic. Sigh.The Covenant‘s Chace Crawford, Wrong Turn‘s Eliza Dushku, pictured above, Tropic Thunder‘s Brandon T. Jackson and Final Destination 5‘s PJ Byrne are set to start production on Eloise, the Robert Legato-directed psychological thriller, Deadline reports.

Penned by Chris Borrelli (Vatican Tapes), “The film is set in a defunct insane asylum known as “Eloise.” Four friends break into the abandoned institution in hopes of finding a death certificate, which will provide Jacob (Crawford) with the rights to a sizable inheritance. While inside the asylum, the group not only finds that the institution houses a horrifying history but also the truth about their own tragic pasts. They’re shooting in the Eloise Insane Asylum which was one of the largest mental institutions in the world. What began as one building in Westland, MI in 1832, rapidly grew into a 78-building self-sustained city, complete with its own fire and police departments, train station, post office and farms. Eloise closed its doors in 1982, and has since been dormant and left to ruin.

Eloise is just getting underway in Detroit, a co-production between Slam Productions, Vinson Films and Legato, who has won two Oscars for visual effects work on Hugo and Titanic.
