ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A horror film with a budget in the millions and Oscar nominated lead actor is on hold. The movie may be made in St. Louis Missouri if tax credits from the state are approved. They are still waiting for the state to get back to them.

Representatives from the film also say Vincent D’Onofrio, Daryl Hannah, and Cedric the Entertainer also have roles in the film. It is being directed by Jennifer Lynch. This is her 5th movie acting as a director.
The movie’s budget would be $10 million dollars according to a representative from the film. If financing is secured it could bring jobs and much needed national exposure to St. Louis.
