Shooting begins soon!
Screen Daily broke the story out of the American Film Market, but did not confirmed whether or not Thomas Hayden Church did indeed sign on to star. The actor was previously said to be circling the project.
Anthony Leonardi is directing and Slash will produce through his Slash Films production outfit.
Here is the synopsis we provided earlier:
When opportunity knocks, a young down-on-their-luck family packs up their home and moves halfway across the country to re-root themselves into an idyllic little town filled with hopes of a better life. What awaits them however is a tale of betrayal and evil beyond any of their worst nightmares.
Anchored around the complicated, nuanced relationship of the two teenage sisters, NOTHING TO FEAR takes sibling rivalry to a chilling new dimension of bloodlust and fear. Each of the sisters play a dangerous and frightening part of an ancient ritual that unleashes a demonic fury that will change the family forever.
Stemming from folklore surrounding the actual town of Stull, Kansas, generations of residents and outsiders alike have proclaimed Stull to be one of the seven known gateways to Hell, where once a year, the Devil will rise from the townâ€™s modest graveyard to walk the Earth. For decades, television, music, movies, and more have cautiously addressed the town; its horror is so infamous, even Pope John Paul II refused to fly over its grounds. NOTHING TO FEAR finally pulls the folklore to the forefront and reveals the unsettling fact and fiction rumbling beneath the surface.
