Abigail Breslin spirited to ‘Haunter’

Will topline Copperheart Entertainment ghost mystery

Just two weeks after signing on to star opposite Halle Berry in Brad Anderson’s thriller “The Hive,” Abigail Breslin has agreed to topline Copperheart Entertainment’s “Haunter,” a supernatural mystery that Vincenzo Natali will direct from a script by Matthew Brian King.

A reverse ghost story, “Haunter” follows Lisa (Breslin), a teenage girl who died under sinister circumstances in 1986 along with her family. Trapped in their house together and unable to move on, Lisa must reach out from beyond the grave to help her present-day, living counterpart avoid the same fate she suffered.

Steve Hoban and Mark Smith will produce for Copperheart, which previously produced Natali’s 2009 horror pic “Splice.”

Production is skedded to start mid-April in Toronto.

Breslin, who’s currently filming Gavin Hood’s adaptation of “Ender’s Game” for Summit and Odd Lot Entertainment, will shoot “The Hive” in June for Troika Pictures. Thesp is also attached to star in Black Sheep Entertainment’s comedy “Virgin Mary.”

Breslin is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
