Somerhalder Goes From The Grave To The Cradle
Lost and The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder has nabbed the lead role in a romantic gothic fairy tale movie, Cradlewood. According to The Hollywood Reporter , the story is about an Australian woman (played by Emma Lung) living in Boston with the heir (Somerhalder) to an incredible fortune. His family’s history involves the legend of a pact made with a demon which ensures that whenever a boy is born into the family, the father is killed. When Somerhalder’s character suspects that his girlfriend is pregnant he becomes convinced that he will die. The indie film is being produced by Hand Picked Films and Instinct Entertainment with former art director and FX guy Harry Weinmann directing. "We see this is as almost like an American-style Pan's Labyrinth in look and feel," says producer Michel Shane. "It's a perfect segue for the kids who have outgrown Twilight but want something romantic and scary. Our monster will be quite terrifying; she is sexually attractive and monstrous at the same time."
