Jeffrey Dean Morgan is set to star in the horror-thriller Dibbuk Box for Lionsgate and Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures. Lionsgate has already set the film’s release for October 28th, a Halloween weekend now absent their Saw franchise. Danish director Ole Bornedal (The Substitute) will direct a script by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White based on true events. According to Variety,
“Morgan will star as a recently divorced father whose youngest daughter becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter’s behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk — a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.”
While many folks probably don’t know what a Dibbuk is (unless they saw A Serious Man), I suppose Dibbuk Box is a better title than Yard Sale Ghost.
