Actress Abigail Breslin has signed on to star in Haunter, a supernatural thriller from Splice director Vincenzo Natali.

The project is described as a "reverse ghost story," and centers on Lisa (Abigail Breslin), a teenage girl who was murdered along with the rest of her family in 1986. However, their spirits have not left the house, and Lisa must reach out to the young girl now living there, to prevent her from suffering the same mysterious death.

Vincenzo Natali will direct Haunter from a screenplay by Matthew Brian King. Splice producers Steven Hoban and Mark Smith are producing for Copperheart Entertainment.

Production is scheduled to begin later this month in Toronto.
