It’s been 20 years since John Hannah, Oded Fehr, and Corey Johnson shared the screen in 1999’s The Mummy opposite Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, but Variety announced today that the three men will once again unite for Lair, a horror film from writer/director Adam Ethan Crow.
In the film, Dr. Steven Caramore (Johnson) is a dedicated skeptic and professional debunker of the paranormal. Things change, however, when his friend, Ben Dollarhyde (Fehr), claims to have been possessed by a demon when he committed a murder.
Hannah, who also appeared in the epic Starz series Spartacus and its follow-up Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, will play Mortimer Coulson, Dollarhyde’s lawyer.
In an attempt to save his friend and possibly prove once and for all whether or not the supernatural exists, Caramore sets aside his skepticism and fills a house with various supposedly cursed objects which he then rents out to a lesbian couple (Katarina Cas, Jen Brister) and their two children.
He conveniently does not tell them what he’s done, however, and keeps them under constant surveillance through cameras around the home to see what happens.
Crow began his career as a stand-up comedian eventually segueing into writing and directing. He previously worked with Johnson on the action-thriller The Conversation.
Lair promises to be a chilling supernatural thriller and is set to make its debut in 2020.
