Simon Barrett's Seance to shoot in Canada

Suki Waterhouse has joined the cast of the horror, produced by HanWay Films, Dark Castle Entertainment and Ingenious Media 

Simon Barrett’s mystery horror, Seance, is set to shoot from next month in Canada with British actress Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent) leading the cast.

Set in an all-girls boarding school haunted by a vengeful spirit, the horror film revolves around Camille (Waterhouse), a young woman who arrives at the Fairfield Academy following one of the student’s untimely and violent deaths.

The project is being put together by HanWay Films, Dark Castle Entertainment and Ingenious Media, alongside Addictive Picture’s John Schoenfelder, Russel Ackerman and Tomas Deckaj. Alex Mace is producing and Hal Sadoff will executive produce for Dark Castle.

Based on a screenplay by Barrett the project marks the third collaboration between the filmmaker and HanWay who have also worked closely on Barrett’s films The Guest and You’re Next, both directed by Adam Wingard who will serve as executive producer on Seance.

The film is currently in pre-production and will begin to shoot on location in Canada in November. Heads of department include cinematographer Karim Hussain (Random Acts Of Violenceand production designer Marlena Feehery (The Iron Orchard).

Sadoff, CEO at Dark Castle, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Simon Barrett and to partner with HanWay and Ingenious on this exciting and clever horror tale. Suki Waterhouse is the perfect actor to bring this scary story to life.”

Genre specialist Dark Castle and UK sales firm HanWay have retained worldwide rights and will commence sales at the upcoming American Film Market.
