Bloody Disgusting revealed this afternoon that Twilight star Jackson Rathbone has joined the cast of the upcoming horror film Dread. Anthony DiBlasi is set to write and direct the film from a short story by Clive Barker.

This particular tale comes from Barker's anthology Books of Blood, which focuses on people’s worst fears. The story of Dread revolves around a film student named Stephen Grace who is befriended by a troubled young man named Quaid. Quaid, who has been plagued by a past tragedy, convinces Stephen to make a documentary about the things that people dread the most.

The film begins shooting this October in London for Matador Pictures.
