More casting news has come in for Darren Lynn Bousman’s (Saw II, III, IV; Repo! The Genetic Opera; Mother’s Day) new film Abattoir, which is shooting now in New Orleans.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that J. LaRose and Bryan Batt (pictured; “Mad Men”) have signed on for active haunting. Joe Anderson (Hercules), Dayton Callie, Jessica Lowndes (Altitude, Autopsy), and Lin Shaye (Insidious) also star.
Bousman is directing from a script by David Schow, Teddy Tenenbaum, and Christopher Monfette.
The story centers on a real estate reporter (Lowndes) who unearths an urban legend about a house being built from rooms where horrific tragedies have occurred. The investigation ultimately leads to the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the answer to the terrifying question, “How do you build a haunted house?”
