Jeffrey Dean Morgan has signed onto star in Ole Bornedal’s horror-thriller “Dibbuk Box” for Lionsgate reports Variety.
A feature film spin on LA Times writer Leslie Gornstein’s article “Jinx in a Box”, Morgan will play a recently-divorced father whose youngest daughter develops a bizarre connection to an antique wooden box she bought at a garage sale.
The father discovers that it is in fact a Dibbuk Box, which contains a demonic entity that is seeking out a human host.
Juliet Snowden and Stiles White (“Knowing”) have penned the script while Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert will produce. Filming is expected to kick off shortly.
