Shooting has begun on Vincenzo Natali’s (Splice, Cube) new feature, Haunter, from Copperheart Entertainment.
Abigail Breslin (Zombieland), Stephen McHattie (300, Watchmen), Peter Outerbridge (Silent Hill:Revelation), Michelle Nolden (Time Traveler’s Wife) and David Hewlett (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) has begun.
Haunter, directed by Vincenzo Natali from a screenplay written by Brian King (Cypher), is produced by Steven Hoban (Splice, The Ginger Snaps trilogy), and co-produced by Mark Smith (388 Arletta Avenue).
In this reverse ghost story, teenage Lisa (Breslin) and her family died in 1986 under sinister circumstances but remain trapped in their house, unable to move on. Lisa must reach out from beyond the grave to help her present-day, living counterpart, Olivia, avoid the same fate Lisa and her family suffered.
“Haunter vividly demonstrates that even ghosts have a lot to be afraid of. Brian King’s script constructs a Borgian Labyrinth out of the most mundane settings and shows us how even in our everyday lives, we are spirits living in the material world,” says Natali.
Haunter is distributed in Canada by Entertainment One and in the UK by STUDIOCANAL.
