With the film already being eyed for Halloween season release we suppose it's about time the cast started getting together for the Ghost House produced horror pic "Dibbuk Box." Last week, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was cast in the pic and now Deadline reports that "The Closer" star Kyra Sedgwick has come aboard. She and Morgan will play a divorced couple "whose youngest child becomes strangely attached to an antique wooden box purchased at a yard sale. The girl's behavior becomes erratic and her divorced parents get the carvings on the box deciphered and find the box contains a spirit bent on devouring its human host." So yeah, might want to rethink those trips to the flea market.

“Dibbuk Box” is under the aegis of director Ole Bornedal, with a script from Juliet Snowden and Stiles White, the duo responsible for “Knowing,” so if its ends up being even crazier and lamer than the premise suggests, there is a precedent.

No word yet on when filming will begin but we suppose they'll get it around to it in time to make the October 28th release date.
