Alfre Woodard joins ghost tale Haunted

She last dealt with onscreen terror in Annabelle (2014), but Alfre Woodard is clearly unafraid to face her fears again. With news arriving via The Hollywood Reporter that she has now joined the cast of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's (28 Weeks Later) Haunted.

Chad and Carey Hayes, no stranger themselves to horror after writing The Conjuring (2013) and this year's follow-up, have adapted the story from Henry James' novella Turn Of The Screw. The film will see a young woman arriving to work at a wealthy estate, but who soon starts to believe that the house is haunted.

And things take a turn for the creepier when she starts to suspect that the children in her care are possessed. As for Woodard, she will be playing someone who works at the estate, so perhaps she will be one of those doing the scaring this time around.

Woodard will be back on our screens in Luke Cage, playing ambitious Harlem politician Mariah Dillard, who has more to her than might first be suspected. The Netflix series kicks off on the streaming service on 30 September.
