Danielle Panabaker Also Joins John Carpenter's The Ward

June 18, 2009

Danielle Panabaker

If you weren't interested in John Carpenter's latest, you might be now. Carpenter has booked former Friday the 13th actress Danielle Panabaker to star opposite Amber Heard (announced in February). The project is called The Ward, a psychological horror thriller written by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen (Long Distance). The story follows a girl (Heard) who is admitted to a psychiatric ward where she meets other girls there with distinct personalities and discovers a mysterious girl haunting the halls at night. Panabaker plays another patient in the institution, a snobbish girl who flirts with orderlies and faces electroshock therapy.

In addition to Panabaker, Taking Woodstock star Mamie Gummer has also joined the cast as a patient in the ward. Principal photography is scheduled to begin next month in Spokane, Washington. The legendary John Carpenter hasn't directed anything since Ghosts of Mars in 2001. I'm looking forward to seeing his return to directing, especially with at least two beautiful actresses like Panabaker and Heard. "The Ward is the kind of script that I've been looking for: a complex, visceral story, full of suspense and scares," Carpenter said in February. It seems like a very intense thriller that should live up to some of his earlier work - or so I hope.
