Jeffrey Dean Morgan Cast in Dibbuk Box


Lionsgate’s 2011 Halloween offering

Variety is reporting that actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, star of Watchmen, The Losers and the upcoming horror flick The Resident with Hilary Swank, has been cast as the lead in Ghost House Pictures’ Dibbuk Box, which is set to be released by Lionsgate on October 28.

Produced by Ghost House’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert and helmed by Danish filmmaker Ole Bornedal (Just Another Love Story) and inspired by true events, Morgan plays a divorced father whose young daughter purchases an ancient wooden box at a yard sale and then starts behaving erratically, which her father traces back to her new accessory. The box is said to contain a dibbuk, a spirit that inhabits and eats the soul of its human host.
