The storyline is being kept under wraps, but the pic does see the return of Amenabar to the thriller genre. He worked with TWC-Dimension previously on the 2001 Nicole Kidman starrer The Others,  which grossed more than $200 million worldwide. He also won the foreign language film Oscar for his 2004 film The Sea Inside.

Watson, known for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, most recently appeared in comedy This Is the End and Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring. Repped by WME and Markham Froggatt Irwin, she'll next appear in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah.
