Sarsgaard, Farmiga join ‘Orphan’

Collet-Serra directing horror film

Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga will star in the horror film “Orphan” for Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment.

Story revolves around a husband and wife (Sarsgaard and Farmiga) who lose a baby and then adopt a 9-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be. David Leslie Johnson penned the screenplay, which is based on a story by Alex Mace.

Shooting is scheduled to begin next week in Toronto and Montreal.
