Newcomer Isabelle Fuhrman will play the daughter of Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga’s characters in the horror film Orphan, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Jaume Collet-Serra is directing for Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment. Warner Bros. is distributing the film.
David Johnson wrote the screenplay, based on a story by Alex Mace. Appian Way also is producing.
The story revolves around a husband and wife (Sarsgaard, Farmiga) who lose a baby and then adopt the eccentric Esther (Fuhrman.) The 9-year-old appears innocent at first but turns out to have a dark side.
Shooting began last week in Toronto.
