Thomas Jane and Eva Longoria have signed on for two new projects from microbudget horror producing magnate Jason Blum.
Jane will re-team with his “The Punisher: Dirty Laundry” unauthorised Marvel short film director Phil Joanou’s for “The Veil” at Universal Pictures. Filming begins in April.
“Reno 911” co-creator Robert Ben Garant penned the script which begins three decades ago when the members of the religious cult Heaven’s Veil commit suicide.
The sole survivor, a then five-year-old girl, is taken back to the compound thirty years later with a documentary crew to determine what really happened – the truth turns out to be far more terrifying.
Before that starts though, Blum is getting to work on “Visions” which “Desperate Housewives” star Longoria has joined. The story follows a pregnant woman (Isla Fisher) who moves with her husband to the countryside where she is plagued by visions of a sinister hooded figure.
Longoria will play Fisher’s friend who disapproves of her friend’s life choices. Anson Mount, Gillian Jacobs and Jim Parsons also star.
