"Gossip Girl" actor Sebastian Stan will star opposite Ashley Green in "The Apparition," a supernatural horror project from Dark Castle Entertainment. Todd Lincoln is directing.

Stan joins Green in the story of a couple who are haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment. Lincoln wrote the script, which is said to be inspired by true events.

Joel Silver, Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing. Steve Richards, Sue Baden Powell and Daniel Alter are exec producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin Feb. 1 at Studio Babelsberg in Germany, then moves to Los Angeles in March.

The lead is the biggest movie part yet for Brookside Management-repped Stan, who plays Carter Baizen on CW's "Gossip Girl." He just wrapped shooting Darren Aronofsky's thriller "Black Swan" and will appear in the John Cusack comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine."
