Everyone has skeletons in their closet, right? Well, not like these people.
A new horror film–Skeletons in the Closet–has landed an impressive start to its cast as production starts this week in Las Vegas, according to a report on Deadline.
Terrence Howard–with an Oscar nom for his role in Hustle & Flow–and Cuba Gooding Jr.–an Academy Award winner for Jerry Maguire–lead the cast. Also featured are Clifton Powell (Ray) and Valery M. Ortiz (Thriller).
The film–directed by Lance Kawas (Apartment 213) from a screenplay by Koji Steven Sakai (The Commando) and Joshua A. Cohen (Red Herring), and based on an original story by Al Bravo–tells the eerie tale of the spirit of La Llorona ” granting a costly wish to the parents of a child by curing her of cancer,” according to the official synopsis.
But, in saving her child, the mother “suffers the consequences by losing her husband and becoming more evil, until she pledges her allegiance to La Llorona. The father (Howard) spirals down the path of self-destruction after borrowing money from a ruthless mobster to pay the hospital bills for his daughter.”
