Jeffrey Dean Morgan stars in horror thriller
Ole Bornedal (“Just Another Love Story,” “The Substitute”) is directing from a script — inspired by true events — by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White. Morgan will star as a recently divorced father whose youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter’s behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk — a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host. Stan Wertlieb, Peter Schlessel, and Ghost House principal Nathan Kahane will exec produce. Stephen Susco and Ghost House’s J.R. Young, Nicole Brown and Kelli Konop will co-produce. Morgan was last seen in “The Losers.” He’s filmed a starring role opposite Sam Worthington in indie murder mystery “The Fields.” Michael Mann produced and his daughter Ami Canaan Mann directed. He’s also completed production on the MGM/UA’s upcoming reboot of the 1984 action movie “Red Dawn” and on the indie “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding” alongside Catherine Keener and Jane Fonda for director Bruce Beresford (“Driving Miss Daisy”).
