One of the few actors to appear in all three seasons of “American Horror Story,” Lily Rabe is on a roll as far as genre fare is concerned, and she’s just been tapped to star in two upcoming projects that will further endear her to us horror fans. Read on!
First up, THR reports that Rabe will topline low budget supernatural thriller The Veil, which is being produced by Blumhouse Productions. She joins the previously announced Thomas Jane and Jessica Alba.
Written by Robert Ben Garant and set to be directed by Phil Joanou, the film’s story revolves around members of a religious cult known as Heaven’s Veil, who take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened remains buried deep in the memory of the sole survivor, a 5-year-old girl, who returns to the compound with a documentary crew as an adult. They soon discover something that is far more terrifying than anything they could have imagined.
Rabe will play the adult survivor opposite Alba’s doc filmmaker.
Also, Deadline reports that Rabe will star in the ABC pilot “The Visitors,” a TV venture from Steven Spielberg’s company Amblin. Penned by Soo Hugh, “The Visitors” chronicles the race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy out to destroy the world.
Rabe will play Claire Bennigan, an FBI agent and single mother who is torn between work and home life.
