Writer/director Ti West, who scored with both fans and critics with his last feature THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, has started rolling on his new movie for Glass Eye Pix and Dark Sky Films, THE INNKEEPERS. Some news just came down the wire about who’s starring in the flick, as well as a plot synopsis.
The movie will star Sara Paxton (pictured), who toplined last year’s LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT remake and just did a turn in the indie chiller ENTER NOWHERE (see item here). Also in the INNKEEPERS ensemble are Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis (one of the leads of Jim Mickle’s upcoming STAKE LAND for Dark Sky and Glass Eye) and George Riddle. The storyline goes like this:
“THE INNKEEPERS is centered around the final two employees working in a haunted hotel before it goes out of business. After over 100 years in business, The Yankee Pedlar Hotel is about to close its doors for good. The last remaining clerks, Claire (Sara Paxton), a 20something who has come to terms with her lot in life, and Luke (Pat Healy), a computer-smart loner, are convinced that the hotel is haunted and are determined to prove it. As time ticks down to the final days of operation, mysterious guests check in, including Leanne Rease-Jones (Kelly McGillis), a former TV actress turned psychic, and an old man insistent on staying in room 353. As several strange occurrences begin to add up, both Claire and Luke must make the crucial decision on what to believe and what not to believe…”
The movie is shooting at the actual Yankee Pedlar Hotel in Connecticut, which has long had a rep for actually being haunted. West, PLAGUE TOWN’s Derek Curl, Peter Phok and Larry Fessenden are producing THE INNKEEPERS; look for more on this production in the near future!
