Let’s Hope the Dushku-Starring Asylum Film isn’t Found Footage

Eliza DushkuReady for more abandoned asylum thrills? Well, Eliza Dushku, Chace Crawford, Brandon T. Jackson and PJ Byrne are set to star in Eloise for director Robert Legato.

Shooting begins next month in Detroit. According to Deadline:

The film is set in a defunct insane asylum known as “Eloise.” Four friends break into the abandoned institution in hopes of finding a death certificate, which will provide Jacob (Crawford) with the rights to a sizable inheritance. While inside the asylum, the group not only finds that the institution houses a horrifying history but also the truth about their own tragic pasts.

Vatican Tapes scribe Chris Borrelli penned this one. I'm not entirely sure how this film will separate itself from the rest of the pack. Not being a found footage would be a good start (we're not sure if it is or isn't one yet).

    Eliza Dushku is too awesome and gorgeous to be seen only in found footage!

    Oh, I thought you meant “The Asylum”, not a film SET in an asylum. I was like “I don’t care, The Asylum’s movies are always good for a laugh, and Eliza Dushku is hot, so it’s a win win”. Oddly disappointed it isn’t an Asylum company movie, but I guess they’re caught up doing #2shark2nado
