The Fear Monger: Death Note Rumors, Danny Trejo And A Kooky New Zealand Haunter
Kate Beckinsale and Game of Throne’s Rose Leslie Join Big ProjectsYou know what horror movies don’t have enough of? British and Scottish accents. Thankfully, two pieces of casting news are here to fix that. First up is Underworld star Kate Beckinsale joining director DJ Caruso’s The Disappointments Room, a psychological thriller "in the vein of The Shining," according to Deadline. Beckinsale will play a mother who moves into a dream home with her 5-year-old son and husband David, and soon discovers a secret room in the attic that bring the home’s haunted past back to the present. The script was written by former Prison Break star and Stoker scribe Wentworth Miller, which has just the kind of "might be a good thing" vibe as everything else.
Meanwhile, Rose Leslie (who played the wild child Ygritte on Game of Thrones) will co-star with Vin Diesel in Summit’s supernatural action flick The Last Witch Hunter. Directed by The Crazies’ Breck Eisner, The Last Witch Hunter will see Diesel playing an immortal-ish hunter who is forced to team up with a female witch – his worst nightmare! – in order to stop a ruthless witch queen from using an ancient relic to destroy mankind. Not only will Leslie kick some ass alongside Diesel, but she’ll also be his love interest, per THR. That might be creepier than anything else going on in anybody's cauldrons.
