Lily Rabe joins Jane, Alba in religious cult horror “THE VEIL”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Lily Rabe, the breakout of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, will join another as she teams with current horror producer extraordinaire Jason Blum on upcoming cult-centered story THE VEIL.
THR is reporting Rabe will join Jessica Alba and Thomas Jane in the film about a religious cult called Heaven’s Veil and the survivor of the group’s mass suicide who returns to site as an adult with a documentary crew. Rabe will play said survivor, while Alba essays the doc filmmaker. Blum and his Blumhouse are producing, while Phil Joanou directs.
Interestingly, Robert Ben Garant, best known as one of the creators of RENO 911! and self-aware scripter of family fare alongside Thomas Lennon, penned THE VEIL alone. He and co-writer Lennon brought us HELL BABY last year, so it’ll certainly be intriguing to see what Garant brings to a seemingly more serious terror tale.
