Mandy Moore to star in ghost pic ‘Falling Slowly’

Chris Sparling makes directorial debut

Mandy Moore and Rodrigo Santoro will star in “Falling Slowly,” the directorial debut of “Buried” writer Chris Sparling.

The supernatural drama, about a couple whose apartment is haunted by a dark presence, will be produced by Julie Snyder, producer of “Tanner Hall.”

Moore performed Sunday night at the Academy Awards, singing the duet “I See the Light” from the Disney animated hit “Tangled,” for which she also voiced the lead. She remains active as a recording artist and is currently working on a follow-up to her 2009 release “Amanda Leigh.”

Santoro played a supporting role in “I Love You Phillip Morris” and voices a character in the upcoming animated pic “Rango” for 20th Century Fox.

“Falling Slowly” will be the feature directorial debut for Sparling, who won the National Board of Review award for original screenplay with “Buried.”

UTA represents Moore, Sparling and worldwide rights for “Falling Slowly”; Moore is also repped by Storefront Entertainment; Sparling is also repped by Kaplan/Perrone. Santoro is represented by ICM.
