Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello is joining the untitled "James Wan Presents" thriller.
After five ghost-hunting college students are massacred in an abandoned home, detective Mark Lewis (to be cast) and police psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello), question the survivors who claim that the house is haunted and that their murdered friends were victims of a supernatural force.
Clay also produced 2010's Beautiful Boy," which starred Bello and Michael Sheen (The "Twilight" films).
The Dimension Films production will start in January in Baton Rouge, LA.
Bello, probably best known for the acclaimed indies "A History of Violence" and "The Cooler," recently starred on NBC's short-lived "Prime Suspect" and in the Taylor Lautner movie "Abduction."
