Ti West directing Dark Sky Films horror project

"Last House on the Left" star Sara Paxton has signed up for another fright-filled work assignment.

The actress will headline "The Innkeepers," the latest creepfest from "The House of the Devil" writer-director Ti West. Dark Sky Films is producing the project, which started shooting this week in Connecticut.

Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis and George Riddle have also joined the cast of the ghost story.

Paxton and Healy play the last two clerks in a hundred-year-old haunted hotel in the last days before its closure as a few final strange guests come to stay. The shoot is taking place at the Yankee Pedlar Inn, a real New England hotel long suspected of actually being haunted.

Derek Curl, Peter Phok, Larry Fessenden and West are producing. The Chicago-based Dark Sky, a subsidiary of MPI Media Group, is producing in partnership with Glass Eye Pix.

Repped by UTA and Stein Entertainment Group, Paxton recently starred in "Superhero Movie," "Sydney White" and "Aquamarine."
