The director of Martyrs is set to begin shooting his next horror film this summer.
We broke the news back in March that French filmmaker Pascal Laugier‘s next would be Incident In a Ghost Land for Radar Films.
Laugier penned the script, which we were told follows a mother of two who inherits a home from her Aunt. On the first night in the new home she is confronted with murderous intruders and fights for her daughters’ lives.
When the girls suffer this terrible childhood trauma, their disparate personalities diverge even further. One is said to become a famous horror author, with a perfect family and life in Los Angeles, while the other can’t cope, and loses her mind.
The movie takes place 16 years later when the daughters reunite at the house, and that’s when things get strange.
Bloody Disgusting has confirmed with multiple sources that the two female leads have been cast: Mylène Farmer, Crystal Reed and Anastasia Philipps.
Farmer, pictured below, will play the MOTHER. She is an extremely famous French singer who has sold more than 30 million records in France, and is among the most successful recording artists of all-time there (Wiki).
Reed and Philipps will play the film’s sisters. You’ll recognize Reed, above, as the star of “Teen Wolf.” She has also appeared in Crush and Skyline.
The script as been described to me as being Stephen King-esque, and extremely dark and scary.
Clement Miserez and Jean-Charles Levy produce Ghost Land.
Shooting begins this August in New York and Toronto.
