D.J. Caruso Moves Kate Beckinsale into 'The Disappointments Room'
There's been an abundance of bland projects lately for the lovely Kate Beckinsale. With films like Total Recall, Contraband and Underworld: Awakening being the most recent films in her career, she needs to do some recovering. Perhaps she'll find relief in The Disappointments Room, a new project that Deadline reports Disturbia and Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso will direct for Relativity Media. The film is described as being a psychological thriller in the same vein as The Shining, but the film sounds just like plenty of other horror films we've seen about a family moving into an old, haunted house with dark secrets. More below!
The film is said to be inspired by real events as it tells the story of a couple and their five-year old son who move into their dream house, an old rural home with a secret room hidden in their attic. Beckinsale will play the matriarch of the household as she discovers the key to this secret room that leads to spooky and inexplicable events happening all around the house, all tied to its terrifying past, which just may be entwined with her own personal history too. The only saving grace might be the script coming from Wentworth Miller, who wrote a haunting and creepy script for Stoker, and Caruso has already done his own pass as well. The film is expected to begin shooting next month, so stay tuned.
