Ethan Hawke could be shocking audiences with a role in a new horror film.
The Brooklyn's Finest star has apparently agreed to star in Scott Derrickson's untitled horror-thriller, produced by Paranormal Activity and Insidious' Jason Blum, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Scott - who worked on The Exorcism Of Emily Rose and The Day The Earth Stood Still remake, starring Keanu Reeves - is set to start shooting the low-budget movie from September, from a script he co-wrote with C Robert Cargill.
The story and the film's title is being kept under wraps.
Ethan, last seen in vampire flick Daybreakers, recently wrapped production on the TV adaptation of Moby Dick, starring opposite William Hurt.
His next big-screen outing is a cameo appearance in Len Wiseman's Total Recall remake, alongside Colin Farrell, and a role in Richard Linklater's ongoing Boyhood, which began filming back in 2002.
