The gorgeous Ali Larter -below ('Final Destination', 'Heroes') has signed on as the lead in Alistair Legrand's directorial debut 'The Diabolical'. Preferred Film & TV will produce the paranormal ghost tale in which a mother and her children are hassled by a restless spook. Legrand will direct from a script he co-wrote along with Luke Harvis. Filming kicks off next month and you can check out an early piece of teaser art for the project below. Despite a number of upcoming new projects for Larter it's been more than 3 years since the 37-year old actresses last big screen outing when she reprised her role as Clare Redfield in action zombie sequel 'Resident Evil: Afterlife'.
"The Diabolical follows Madison and her children in their quiet suburban home as they are awoken nightly by an increasingly strange and intense presence. Madison desperately seeks help from her scientist boyfriend Nikolai, who begins a hunt to destroy the violent spirit that paranormal experts are too frightened to undertake."
