Longoria Parker to Star in Reyes’ Tenement


Eva Longoria Parker will star in the supernatural horror film Tenement, to be directed by Franc. Reyes (Empire, Illegal Tender, The Ministers).

A quick peek at Alumbra Films’ blog spot yielded a quote from Reyes about the film:

“If I had to point to one film that had the full impact of story, writing and genius directing, on me it has to be The Exorcist. Telling the story of Tenement fuses The Exorcist, Amityville Horror and Rosemary’s Baby.”

Alumbra was formed by the multi-hyphenate Reyes (he’s a director, producer, songwriter).

Filming is scheduled to begin next month in New York.
