Elisabeth Shue joins 'House' thriller

Actress cast opposite 'Winter's Bone' star Jennifer Lawrence

SAN DIEGO -- Elisabeth Shue will star opposite "Winter's Bone" star Jennifer Lawrence and Max Thieriot in "House at the End of the Street," a thriller from FilmNation and A Bigger Boat being directed by Mark Tonderai.

"House" centers on a teen girl (Lawrence) who moves with her mom (Shue) to a new town and learns that their home is across the street from a house where a double murder took place. Complications ensue when the teen befriends the massacre's sole surviving son (Thieriot).

The project hopes to be to "Psycho" what "Disturbia" was to "Rear Window."

FilmNation's Aaron Ryder and Peter Block of A Bigger Boat are producing with Tim Williams, Hal Lieberman and Jonathan Mostow. Mostow wrote the story on which the script, written by David Loucka, is based.

Production is set to start early next month in Ottawa.

Shue, repped by CAA and Management 360, next appears in Alexandre Aja's horror remake "Piranha 3D " and recently wrapped the indie "Janie Jones" with Abigail Breslin.
