An Oscar nominee last year for her performance in the excellent crime flick “Animal Kingdom” and soon to appear in David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” Australian actress Jacki Weaver has landed a role in Mac Carter’s debut feature, “Haunt.” Weaver joins Liana Liberato (who was pretty great in David Schwimmer’s “Trust”) and newcomer Harrison Gilbertson in the original horror film about a family who moves into “a new home with a dark past.” Weaver will play a former resident of the house who has suffered a family tragedy, in what sounds like a less bat-shit crazy version of “American Horror Story.”

Although still reeling from the failed domestic launch of “Battleship,” Universal still believes in the premise of toys-as-movies, and has entered negotiations to acquire the rights to Lego's robotic toy line Hero Factory. The writing duo behind 2010’s “Predators,” Michael Finch and Alex Litvak, will pen the script. [THR]
