Elizabeth Olsen, the sister of better-known twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, has signed up to star in paranormal thriller Red Lights.

Joining a stellar cast that includes Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro and Cillian Murphy, Olsen will be directed by Rodrigo Cortés, whose Buried was one of last year’s most inventive and best-reviewed movies.

“Robert plays a world renowned psychic and Sigourney is a psychology professor, and I play her student,” Olsen tells Risky Business .

“Cillian Murphy is my love interest, though that’s not a huge part of the story.” Together, Weaver and Olsen’s characters investigate De Niro’s activities as a so-called psychic.

Two of Olsen’s films are currently showing at Sundance, with both Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene well-received by audiences.
