The Walking Dead's very own Jeffrey Dean Morgan will star in an upcoming horror film for Screen Gems, which is based on James Herbert’s horror novel, Shrine. According to Deadline, Sam Raimi's Ghost House banner is producing the film, which has just brought on board the actor in its leading role.
The original story from Herbert focuses on a disgraced journalist who discovers a series of seemingly divine miracles in a small New England town and uses them to resurrect his career, but the "miracles" may have a much darker source.
Written and directed by Beauty and the Beast scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos, the film will begin production in February with both Raimi and Rob Tapert on board as producers. Also overseeing the project are Romel Adam, Scott Strauss, and Michael Bitar.
We don't yet have a release date or further casting details for Shrine, but we'll be sure to keep you posted with all the latest right here on Dead Entertainment.
