About a girl who is forced to return to her father’s home in Louisiana when a car accident leaves her without the use of her legs. What she finds there is a mystery surrounding her own birth and an angry ghost that seems determined to destroy her.
Bloody Disgusting learned that Lionsgate has reverted Ghosts back to Jessabelle, the originally announced title.
In theaters January 10, 2014, the film is “about a girl who is forced to return to her father’s home in Louisiana when a car accident leaves her without the use of her legs. What she finds there is a mystery surrounding her own birth and an angry ghost that seems determined to destroy her.”
Directed by Saw VI‘s Kevin Greutert, the film stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, Joelle Carter, Ana De La Reguera and Amber Stevens. READ MORE
Universal Pictures’ R.I.P.D. is getting post-converted to 3-D for its July 19 release. What’s even more interesting is that they’ve been filming additional scenes for months, which begs the question, are they shooting the new scenes in 3-D? I doubt it. Robert Schwentke directs the Dark Horse Comics adaptation in which a recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him. Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon and Stephanie Szostak star.
Aussie actress Sarah Snook (star of Lionsgate’s Ghosts, directed by Saw 3D’s Kevin Greutert; pictured above) has just landed the lead female role opposite Ethan Hawke in Predestination, a time-travelling sci-fi thriller that reteams Hawke with his Daybreakers writer-directors Peter and Michael Spierig, reports Deadline. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions acquired domestic and some international rights in Cannes to the pic, in which Hawke plays a Temporal Agent who on his final assignment pursues a criminal who has long eluded him. Blacklab Entertainment’s Tim McGahan and Wolfhound Pictures’ Patrick McDonald produce the movie, which is based on a short story by Robert A. Heinlein. Shooting begins April 8 in Melbourne.
Lastly, it was confirmed today long standing news that Harry Potter, Horns and The Woman in Black‘s Daniel Radcliffe, pictured, is in final negotiations to star as Igor in the classic tale Frankenstein for 20th Century Fox and Davis Entertainment, says Variety. Paul McGuigan is on board to direct the gothic feature from a script by Max Landis (Chronicle). Based on Mary Shelley’s 19th century novel, “Frankenstein” is expected to shoot in the fall. READ MORE
Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) and Daniel Henshall (Snowtown) will star in first time feature writer-director Zak Hilditch’s These Final Hours, which is just now entering post production.
Now Scree Daily is reporting that XYZ has picked up worldwide rights to the film. Celluloid Nightmares is set to handle sales at the upcoming EFM. Hilditch’s short, “Transmission,” screened in Tribeca in 2011. His collaborator on that project, Liz Kearney, is producing These Final Hours.
In the film, “Phillips plays a self-obsessed young guy who makes his way to the party-to-end-all-parties on the last day on Earth but ends up saving the life of a young girl who’s searching for her father.”
The cast also includes Australian actresses Jessica De Gouw (“Kath & Kimderella”) and Sarah Snook (Lionsgate’s Jessabelle).
The film shot in Perth last year.
Bloody Disgusting has received exclusive first word that Lionsgate has slated the tentatively titled Ghosts for release on January 10, 2014.

Penned by Robert Ben Garant, here’s the official plot crunch: “After losing her fiancé in a horrific accident, Jessabelle is forced to recuperate at her father’s ruined Louisiana mansion, where she discovers a strange gift from her long-dead mother, and a terrifying presence determined to destroy her.”
