Deadline reports that The boys Star Erin Moriarty and The Twilight Saga Star Jamie Campbell Bower have signed on to star in the upcoming horror movie True hauntingbased on the 2011 novel of the same name by Edwin F. Becker.

As the title suggests, True haunting recounts a “real haunting”. The book tells the first-hand account of Ed and Marsha Becker, a young couple who move into a new house and soon discover that it is haunted. The Beckers’ paranormal experience quickly became national news when their home became the location of the first ever exorcism to be nationally televised. NBC covered the event and broadcast it to millions across the country in 1971. As the book claims, not only did the exorcism not work, it made the Beckers’ situation even worse. Moriarty and Bower are set to play the Beckers in the film.


True haunting will be led by Gary Fleder. Fleder is known more recently for directing episodes of shows like the MMA drama Kingdom but is probably best known for spearheading the adaptation of the James Patterson novel Kiss the girls featuring Morgan FREEMAN. The screenplay for this film was written by Richard d’Ovidio and with Blair Butler revise it. D’Ovidio has experience writing horror with movies like Thir13en Ghosts and the damnedhe also wrote the recent Netflix thriller Hypnotic. Butler has already written horror films like Polaroid and party from hell.
