Peter Facinelli ("Twilight," "Damages") will star in Victor Garcia's supernatural horror thriller "Gallows Hill" for Launchpad Productions and A Bigger Boat says Heat Vision.

Facinelli plays an American, widowed from his Colombia-born wife, who flies to Bogota with his new fiancée (Sophia Myles) to retrieve his rebellious teenage daughter Jill (Nathalia Ramos).

After a car accident leaves them stranded in a rundown isolated inn, they discover the old innkeeper has locked a young girl in the basement and their decision to set her free has unintended consequences.

Richard D'Ovidio ("Thirteen Ghosts") wrote the story with producer David Higgins. Peter Block and Andrea Chung also produce and shooting begins later this month in Bogota.
