AnnaSophia Robb will star in the supernatural drama “Down a Dark Hall” for Lionsgate, which has been in development for two years.
Rodrigo Cortes is directing “Down a Dark Hall,” which also stars Isabelle Fuhrman. The film started shooting in Barcelona.
The project is based on the 1974 novel by Lois Duncan. Meyer and Meghan Hibbett will produce via their Fickle Fish Films along with Godfrey and Bowen through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner. Meyer optioned the book in 2013.
The story follows the newest student at a boarding school who confronts the darkly seductive powers of the headmistress and comes face to face with the supernatural abilities that could make her all-powerful or destroy her.
