Abigail Breslin is set to headline Vincenzo Natali's upcoming ghost tale, Haunter, Variety reports.
Announced earlier this year, as a "reverse ghost story," Haunter is written by Brian King and tells of a young woman, Lisa (Breslin), and her family who were killed in their home. Their ghosts remain behind as Lisa haunts and possesses the daughter of the new family that lives there, attempting to protect the living girl from danger.
Natali, best known for Cube and Splice, is set to begin production on the project next month in Toronto. Breslin, meanwhile, is shooting Ender's Game in New Orleans and just signed on to star opposite Halle Berry in Brad Anderson's The Hive.
