Kyra Sedgwick will play Jeffrey Dean Morgan's ex-wife and mother to a young girl who becomes fascinated by a seemingly-ordinary antique box she found at a garage sale. When the parents get the box's unique markings deciphered, they learn it's actually a Dibbuk Box, which contains an evil spirit seeking a human host.
Ole Bornedal is directing Dibbuk Box from a script by Knowing scribes Juliet Snowden and Stiles White. The movie is based on actual events.
Sam Raimi and Robert G. Tapert are producing through their Ghost House Productions banner. It isn't clear when production will start, even though an October 28 release date has already been set.
