Maria Bello Goes Ghost Hunting
With Frank Grillo in a new thriller

23 January 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

It’s been a few years since Mario Bello did a true horror movie – and yes, we’re including Grown Ups – but it appears she’s ready to dive into some supernatural chills once more. She’s signed on to a new, James Wan-produced thriller alongside The Grey’s Frank Grillo.

The film – which was called House Of Horror, but is currently making its way through pre-production without a final title – will see a psychologist (Bello, we assume, since she’s credited as Dr Elizabeth Klein) and a cop (Grillo) interrogate the lone survivor of a ghost hunting expedition that went horribly wrong.

While the normal result of such trips is a bunch of overly dramatic people getting scared by “ghostly” noises on a tape recorder or flickering dials on a temperature gauge, this one ended with five people dead and a real mystery to solve.

Wan, who is no stranger to horror himself after his work on the Saw franchise, came up with the concept but handed it to Max La Bella to write and Will Canon to direct. It'll start filming shortly in Louisiana.

Bello has shot Paul Haggis’ The Third Person and Grown Ups 2. She’s currently filming Prisoners with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Grillo popped up in Gangster Squad and in a small Zero Dark Thirty role. He’s recently worked on Homefront and, more excitingly, is playing Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
