Lucas Till, who played Havoc in X-Men: First Class and this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, is the latest to join the cast of the thriller The Disappointments Room, starring Kate Beckinsale (Total Recall, Pearl Harbor, Underworld) and Mel Raido (The Informers), which will begin production in Greensboro, North Carolina on September 8.
In what is said to be a “flashy role”, THR reports that Till will play a mysterious carpenter who works on Beckinsale’s home in the film.
It was announced last week that Raido will play Beckinsale’s husband in the horror movie about a family who moves into a haunted house.
Described as a psychological thriller in the vein of The Shining, Beckinsale will star as Dana, a mother who begins to question her sanity when she starts seeing ghosts and visions of her new house’s bloody past.
Based on a true story, the plot will follow Dana (Beckinsale) and David (Raido), who are looking for a fresh start with their 5-year-old son when they move into their dream house, a beautiful old rural home, with a secret room hidden in the attic. When frightening and unexplainable events lead Dana to discover the long lost key to this room, she accidentally unlocks a host of unimaginable horrors revealing that the house’s past is terrifyingly tied with her own.
The supernatural thriller from Relativity Media will be directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) and written by Beckinsale’s Underworld co-star Wentworth Miller (Prison Break), who also wrote the very creepy Stoker.
Production in Greensboro, North Carolina filming is scheduled to start on September 8 and run through October 24.
Beckinsale’s husband and Underworld director Len Wiseman is an executive producer and co-creator of the Fox series Sleepy Hollow, which is filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.
