The horror thriller, to shoot in Bulgaria, centers on a small town where a young boy hears a mysterious tapping from inside the walls of his home and suspects his parents are hiding a terrible secret.
Caplan will play the mother of the young boy, Starr will be the boy’s father, while Norman stars as Peter, a timid boy, and Coleman will portray Miss Devine, Peter’s substitute teacher, filling in at the local elementary school.
Directed by Samuel Bodin, Cobweb is written by Chris Thomas Devlin and produced by Roy Lee through his Vertigo Entertainment banner, and by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, through Point Grey.
Jon Berg also serves as producer. Andrew Childs and Josh Fagen will executive produce. Jim Miller and Meredith Wieck are overseeing the project for Lionsgate.
Production this month on Cobweb follows Lionsgate wrapping production on The Devil’s Light, also in Bulgaria.
The announcement for Cobweb was made by Erin Westerman, president of production for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group.
