David Strathairn
"Fracture" star David Strathairn has been picked up to star opposite Elizabeth Banks in DreamWorks' horror remake "A Tale of Two Sisters."


After a stint in thriller genre through "Fracture", now comes a horror turn for David Strathairn as The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the Oscar-nominated actor is coming onboard to join Elizabeth Banks in DreamWorks Pictures' "A Tale of Two Sisters."

An Americanized version of the 2003 Korean flick "Janghwa, Hongryeon", the project revolves around two sisters who return home after spending time in a mental institution. Banks has already billed as their cruel, obsessive stepmother while Strathairn is said to portray their concerned father.

Working on the script originally was Craig Rosenberg before duo Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro got hired to do a rewrite. Filming is slated to start next month in Shreveport, Louisiana with brothers Thomas and Charles Guard at helm and Mark Sourian shepherding the film for DreamWorks president of production Adam Goodman.
