Kate Beckinsale to Star in “THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM,” From “STOKER” WriterNews Samuel Zimmerman
STOKER (the best film of last year) not only brought the talents of Park Chan-wook stateside, but introduced audiences to the writing strengths of actor Wentworth Miller. Now, a second film from the scripter is moving forward with UNDERWORLD’s Kate Beckinsale in the lead.
To be directed by DJ Caruso (DISTURBIA), THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM is the story of one family’s terror-filled encounter within their own home. Looking for a fresh start, Dana (Beckinsale) and David, together with their 5-year-old son Jeremy, move into their dream house, a beautiful old rural home. Hidden within the attic was a secret room. When frightening and unexplainable events lead Dana to discover the long lost key to this room, she accidentally unlocks a host of unimaginable horrors that reveal the house’s past is terrifyingly tied with her own.
Relativity is producing the film, which is expected to start production this August. [Deadline]
