The upcoming film adaptation of James Herbert’s horror novel Shrine from Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures has added another cast member in Jordana Brewster. According to Deadline, the actress will star opposite the previously-announced Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who you will surely recognize from The Walking Dead. Brewster, on the other hand, has appeared in several Fast & Furious movies as well as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and the Lethal Weapon television series.
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.
