Rory Culkin and Insidious fav Lin Shaye, pictured, have been set to star in Jack Goes Home, the hybrid family drama/horror pic that will mark the feature directing debut of A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Thomas Dekker, Deadline reports.
They join the previously announced Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed and Daveigh Chase in the film, which now kicks off production this week in Kingston, NY.
Written and to be helmed by Dekker, “the pic centers on Jack (Culkin), an educated and well versed magazine editor living in LA. He is hit hard by the news of his father’s death in a violent and horrific car crash, which his mother (Shaye) has survived. He returns to his hometown of Denver to nurse his mother through her physical and emotional injuries. There he uncovers long buried secrets and lies within his family history, his parents, his friends and his very identity, fueled by madness, sexuality, hauntings and violence.”
Robertson will co-star as Jack’s pregnant fiancé, Chase plays Jack’s best friend, and Reed is her girlfriend. Louis Hunter also co-stars.
Jack Goes Home is produced by Jordan Yale Levine of Yale Productions, Scott Levenson, and Dekker. Reed and Jon Keeyes co-produce, and Shaun S. Sanghani of SSS Entertainment, Jason Rose and Jessica Chang executive produce.
