We were pretty excited already with the news that Jeffrey Dean Morgan was the first star to sign on to Lionsgate’s horror thriller Dibbuk Box, and now that they’ve landed “The Closer” herself, Kyra Sedgwick, we’re beyond thrilled.
According to Deadline NY Sedgwick will play a mom whose youngest child becomes strangely attached to an antique wooden box purchased at a yard sale. The girl’s behavior becomes erratic, and her divorced parents (Sedgwick and Morgan) get the carvings on the box deciphered and find the box contains a spirit bent on devouring its human host.
Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing via their Ghost House Pictures shingle. Danish director Ole Bornedal (Just Another Love Story, The Substitute) is directing from a script — inspired by true events — by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White.
Dibbuk Box is set for an October 28th theatrical release.
