According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amber Valletta and Ryan Kwanten are set to star in Silence, a horror film being directed by James Wan for Universal Pictures. Greg Hoffman, Mark Burg and Oren Koules of Evolution Entertainment will produce via their genre arm Twisted Pictures.

Kwanten will play a man who returns to his hometown in order to unearth clues to his wife's murder. Valletta plays his father's trophy wife, who is more sinister than she appears.

The screenplay is by Wan and Leigh Whannell, the team behind horror hit Saw, which grossed more than $55 million at the domestic boxoffice.
