British actor Colin Firth has agreed to take a starring role in horror flick "Genova."
Being attached to many big screen projects apparently does not prevent Colin Firth to take one more acting stint into his resume. Variety revealed that the British actor has just signed on to star in a contemporary horror feature entitled "Genova."
Already tapped Michael Winterbottom to direct, the project will see Firth as a recently widowed man who travels to Italy with his teenage daughters to make a fresh start in his life yet later finds out that he can't escape the ghosts of his past. No words yet on other cast members and the writer, but filming is expected to begin by next spring.
Firth, widely known for his performance in BBC's mini TV series "Pride and Prejudice", originally started his acting career onstage before shifting into screen productions in the '80s. He next can be seen playing opposite Aishwarya Rai in "The Last Legion" which is scheduled to open in theaters next January.
