Elisabeth Shue Joins House At The End Of The Street

When I think of Elisabeth Shue, the word “scary” doesn’t necessarily come to mind. It’s easier to picture her as sweet Ali Mills in Karate Kidor Chris Parker in Adventures in Babysitting. But that is changing (those days are long behind her) as she’s getting into the thriller genre.

The Hollywood Reporter has it Shue will join the cast of House at the End of the Street alongside Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Max Thieriot (Chloe). Mark Tonderai (Hush) will direct the thriller.

In the upcoming production, Lawrence will move in with her mother, played by Shue. They live across the street from the location of a double murder. Theiriot will play the only survivor of the violence. He befriend’s Lawrence’s character, and presumably all scariness breaks loose.

In the horror vein, Shue can be seen in the ensemble cast of Piranha 3D, due out in August. She’ll star with Jerry O’Connell, Adam Scott and Ving Rhames among others. Additionally, she just completed filming on Waking Madison with Sarah Roemer and Imogen Poots.

House at the End of the Street is set to start filming next month in Ottawa.
