Britt Robertson set for Jack Goes Home

Thomas Dekker's last film as director was the satirical drama Whore back in 2008. Now news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that is set to return to the director's chair for indie thriller Jack Goes Home, and has recruited Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland) and Nikki Reed (Twilight) to star.

Written by Dekker, Jack Goes Home is pitched as a horror thriller that finds a magazine editor living and working in Los Angeles who is abruptly summoned back to his hometown in Colorado when his father dies in a car accident. Arriving to help nurse his mother back to health after the accident, he starts to uncover buried family secrets and lies that point to something strange about his very identity.

Dekker has described the movie as "the kind of horror film that cannot be easily relegated to the slasher shelf. It is equal parts a family drama and, most importantly, a musing on grief."

Reed is set to play Jack's best friend, while Robertson will be his pregnant fiancée. As for Jack? We will have to wait and see who ends up with that role.

Robertson is currently on our screens in Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride and will next be seen opposite Eddie Murphy (Dreamgirls) in Cook (also known as Henry Joseph Church). Reed has recently worked on indie outings Intramural, A Sunday Horse and Scout, and is currently filming
Alexandra McGuinness' (Lotus Eaters) The Highway Is For Gamblers.
