‘Blair’ star sets Oz chiller

Leonard plays in 'Cubbyhouse'

SYDNEY — “The Blair Witch Project” thesp Joshua Leonard is about to be terrified in Australian thriller “Cubbyhouse,” his first chiller genre role since playing Josh in Artisan’s $250 million-grossing hit.

Leonard will star opposite Belinda McClory (“The Matrix”), Lauren Hewett (“Ocean Girl”) and pop singer Craig McLachlan.

Pic, which starts filming next week in Queensland, has an American family moving to Australia’s Gold Coast, where their children’s playhouse is possessed by a demonic presence.

Directed by Murray Fahey (“Dags”), “Cubbyhouse” is backed by the Australian Film Finance Corp., Showtime Australia and sales agent-distributor Beyond, which has already sold the film across Asia and plans a wide Oz release in June.

Since “Blair Witch Project,” Leonard has starred opposite Robert De Niro in George Tillman Jr.’s “Navy Divers” and Matt Dillon in the Martin Scorsese-produced “Deuces Wild.”
