The Hollywood Reporter writes, 'William Hurt is the latest name to come aboard director M. Night Shyamalan's next project, The Woods for the Walt Disney Co. Hurt joins Joaquin Phoenix and Bryce Dallas Howard in the thriller's ensemble cast.'
'Set in 1897, Woods revolves around a close-knit community that lives with the frightening knowledge that a mythical race of creatures resides in the woods around them.'
'Shyamalan, who penned the Woods script, is also producing along with Scott Rudin and Sam Mercer. Walt Disney Studios chairman Richard Cook and production president Nina Jacobson are overseeing for the studio. Hurt's resume includes roles in such hits as 'The Big Chill' and 'Broadcast News.' Although this marks his first time working with Shyamalan, he has worked with Disney before on last year's 'Tuck Everlasting.'
