Teri Polo Lights A Beacon

Teri Polo will star in the indie paranormal thriller “The Beacon” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Stokes penned and will direct the story of Bryn (Polo), a thirtysomething woman grieving over the loss of her 4-year-old son. Along with her college professor and author husband (Snell), Bryn moves into the charming old Beacon Apartments.

There, she begins to see a boy who died in a fall down the Beacon’s elevator shaft while trying to escape his abusive father. With the help of an eccentric young professor (Urie), Bryn tries to save the boy’s spirit. Ironside plays a tough career cop who has adopted the residents.

David Rees Snell (“The Shield”), Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”) and Michael Ironside (“ER”) co-star. Production on the film started this week in Dallas.
