The “Untitled James Wan Presents Thriller” – formerly known as House of Horror – is adding another cast member to the roster: Frank Grillo. Variety says he’ll co-star alongside Maria Bello, who was confirmed to star last November.
Grillo starred in last year’s The Grey and he’ll be suiting up soon to star on Captain America: Winter Soldier as the bad-ass known as Crossbones.
This is also the first we’re hearing of a director since Xavier Gens parted ways with the project. Apparently, Will Canon (Brotherhood) will helm.
The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre: five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home. Fresh on the scene, detective Mark Lewis and the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello), question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying, and the suspect claims the responsibility doesn’t lie with any of the inhabitants, but with the house itself.
