Paula Patton (“Deja Vu,” “Idlewild”) has signed on to star opposite Kiefer Sutherland in 20th Century Fox’s “Mirrors,” which Alexandre Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes,” “High Tension”) is directing.
The story centers on a cop-turned-department store security guard who discovers that there is something evil living inside the store’s old mirrors.
He traces haunted occurrences back to the building being a hospital and a schizophrenic patient’s evil spirit trapped in a mirrored room.
Patton will play Sutherland’s soon-to-be ex-wife, a coroner with the New York Medical Examiner’s Office who has a hard time believing her husband’s claims.
Shooting begins in early May.
