Teri Polo, co-star of Meet the Parents, has just signed on to star in writer and director Michael Stokes' paranormal thriller The Beacon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Rees Snell, Michael Urie and Michael Ironside will co-star in the thriller, which will be produced by Sally Helppie.

The Beacon centers on Bryn (Polo), a woman who is grieving over the loss of her 4-year-old son. Along with her college professor and author husband (Snell), Bryn moves into the charming old Beacon Apartments. There, she begins to see a boy who died in a fall down the Beacon's elevator shaft while trying to escape his abusive father. With the help of an eccentric young professor (Urie), Bryn tries to save the boy's spirit. Ironside plays a tough career cop who has adopted the residents.
