Skylar Astin is set to join Brenton Thwaites in writer-director Eric Bress’ supernatural psychological thriller Ghosts Of War. The film follows five American soldiers assigned to hold a French mansion against the Nazis in 1944 and find themselves in a hell of their own when forced to battle the spirits of a family murdered there. Astin will play Eugene Genesee, the book-smart soldier that doesn’t fit in with the others but is indispensable for breaking down who and what their enemy is and what it’s capable of. Miscellaneous Entertainment’s D. Todd Shepherd, George Waud, Joe Simpson, and Shelley Madison are the producers of this project. Astin, repped by UTA and Principal Entertainment, currently stars in Epix’s presidential comedy series Graves, opposite Nick Nolte and will be seen in the upcoming film Speech & Debate from Vertical Entertainment.
