From the producer of Insidious 2...
Deadline reports that Aaron Eckhart (Olympus Has Fallen, I, Frankenstein) is set to star in Incarnate for Blumhouse Productions. Jason Blum produced Insidious: Chapter 2, which earned $41 million in its opening weekend, eight times its budget of $5 million.
The film will begin production in November, with Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) directing from a script by Ronnie Christensen.
Here's a synopsis: An unconventional exorcist who can tap into the subconscious of the possessed meets his match when a 9-year-old boy is possessed by a demon from his past.
Blumhouse and IM Global will co-finance. Blum will produce and Couper Samuelson will executive produce with Michael Seitzman and Trevor Engelson.
Along with Insidious, Blumhouse has also handled the Paranormal Activity franchise, as well as Sinister and The Purge. The Purge cost $3 million million and had an opening weekend of $34 million before finishing its run with $64 million. Blumhouse has a first look deal with Universal but Incarnate isn't set for distribution yet.
