Kyra Sedgwick closes ‘Dibbuk Box’ role

Thesp to star opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Kyra Sedgwick will star opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Lionsgate’s horror-thriller “Dibbuk Box” with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert producing via their Ghost House Pictures shingle.

Danish director Ole Bornedal (“Just Another Love Story,” “The Substitute”) is directing from a script — inspired by true events — by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White.

Morgan and Sedgwick will star as recently divorced parents whose youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As the 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.

Lionsgate has already staked a claim to the Halloween frame with “Dibbuk Box,” which is set for domestic release Oct. 28. Lionsgate has released a “Saw” offering around Halloween for the past seven years.

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.

Sedgwick’s starred for seven seasons on TNT’s “The Closer.” She’s also wrapped on Summit’s “Man on a Ledge.” She’s repped by UTA and Impression Entertainment.
