"Pay the Ghost," directed by Uli Edel ("The Baader Meinhof Complex") and starring the illustrious Nicolas Cage, has been acquired by RLJ Entertainment for U.S. distribution. The thriller also stars Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes in "The Walking Dead") and German actress Veronica Ferres.
The official synopsis reads: "One year after his young son disappeared during a Halloween carnival, Mike Cole (Cage) is haunted by eerie images and terrifying messages he can’t explain. Together with his estranged wife (Callies), he will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery and find their son—and, in doing so, he unearths a legend that refuses to remain buried in the past."
Mark Ward, RLJ Entertainment’s Chief Acquisitions Officer, said, "The intense action and scares in ‘Pay the Ghost’ will have audiences on the edge of their seats. We can’t wait to get the film into theaters this September."
