Rob Lowe will star in sequel “Stir of Echoes: The Dead Speak,” to be produced and financed by Lionsgate.
Ernie Barbaresh wrote the script for and will direct the horror thriller, which begins shooting in mid-July in Toronto.
Pic is a followup to the 1999 Kevin Bacon starrer “Stir of Echoes,” which was written and directed by David Koepp and based on a Richard Matheson novel.
Story revolves around a soldier who returns home from a tour of duty in Iraq only to be haunted by visions of the dead. Producers are Toronto-based Philip Stilman, who has a deal with Lionsgate, and Claire Welland.
Barbaresh, a producer on “American Psycho,” wrote and directed “Cube Zero.” Lowe was just seen in “Thank You for Smoking.”
