Variety is exclusively reporting that Omari Hardwick is in final negotiations with Paramount Players to star as the lead in their upcoming horror thriller Spell.
Spell focuses on a man who crashes his plane while en route to rural Appalachia with his family for a funeral and awakens to find himself totally alone and without his bearings. Relieved to be discovered by a seemingly kind elderly couple, he has no way of knowing the dark machinations that lie in wait as he is pulled deeper and deeper into a sinister world.
Mark Tonderai is set to direct, with Kurt Wimmer writing the script. Wimmer will also serve as producer on the project alongside Gordon Gray, Morris Chestnut and Brian Wilkins.
