Kate Beckinsale Considering The Disappointments Room
D.J. Caruso will direct the ghostly tale

No, The Disappointments Room is not the storage locker where Kate Beckinsale keeps the various drafts of the Whiteout screenplay. It’s actually a new supernatural thriller script she’s been offered and that I Am Number Four’s D.J. Caruso is down to direct.

The Disappointments Room would see Beckinsale as a mother who moves her family to a storied mansion in the country. While it has plenty of land and lovely architecture, she discovers it also comes with a gruesome history and starts to slowly go insane when plagued by visions of a dead girl. We always hate it when the estate agents leave that off the listing.

Wentworth Miller, who already demonstrated his scripting chops with Stoker, wrote this one and the project is now set to be touted at the American Film Market. Beckinsale isn’t firmly aboard yet, but the producers will be hoping she signs up so they have another name to dangle in front of prospective investors and distributors.

Beckinsale, last seen in Total Recall, has worked on The Trials Of Cate McCall and Eliza Graves recently, and is shooting Michael Winterbottom’s latest, The Face Of An Angel, alongside Daniel Bruhl.
