After joining the cast of It’s Not You, It’s Me, Joelle Carter is adding another film role to her list; THR has reported she’s been added to Lionsgate’s horror film Jessabelle. She will be joining Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim) and Sarah Snook for the flick, which will have Saw 3D and Saw VI director Kevin Greutert helming the project.
Jessabelle revolves around “Jessie (Snook), who returns to her father’s Louisiana home after an accident robs her of the use of her legs. Once there, she must confront an enraged ghost.” We haven’t been given very much information about Carter‘s role, but she will be playing Sarah, the mother of Jessie. Webber will be playing Preston, an old high school boyfriend of Jessie “who helps her uncover a mystery about her family.”
Although Robert Ben Garant is known for his work on various comedies — Night at the Museum and The Pacifier – he’s making the shift to horror, as he will be writing the script. Production for the project started a few weeks ago, with Jason Blum and Principato Young Entertainment are producing. As for Carter, she will also star in Phedon Papamichael‘s dramedy, Lost Angeles, out later this year.
