Abigail Breslin is one of the few child actors who it’s easy to see working through that awkward teenage stage and still being a star as a grown up. Variety reports that The 15-year-old has now signed on to star in Haunter, a supernatural thriller from Splice director Vincenzo Natali.
The project is described as a ‘reverse ghost story,’ focusing on Lisa (Abigail Breslin), a teenage girl who was murdered along with the rest of her family in 1986. However, their spirits never left the house and Lisa realises she must reach out to the young girl now living there in order to prevent her from suffering the same mysterious death.
Natali is directing from a screenplay by Matthew Brian King, with filming set to being later this month in Toronto.
