Abigail Spencer (”Mad Men”) and Katee Sackoff (”Battlestar Galactica”) are set to star as sisters tormented by horrifying visions in Lionsgate upcoming sequel to last year’s surprise supernatural hit A Haunting in Connecticut. Entitled A Haunting in Georgia, the film is based on actual events reportedly experienced by the Wyrick’s family in Harris County.
Spencer will play Lisa Wyrick, a young mother who fears that her daughter may be having paranormal visions of her own. Directed by newcomer Tom Elkins, A Haunting in Georgia costars Chad Michael Murray (House of Wax) and Emily Alyn Lin as Lisa’s husband and daughter.

A Haunting in Connecticut earned over $76 million in world wide gross. Gold Circle Films is looking to create a based-on-a-true-story franchise with the release of Georgia. Personally, I’m just glad the sequel takes place out of Connecticut because I have a really hard time spelling Connecticut.
A Haunting in Georgia is currently shooting in Baton Rouge.
Sexy promo shots of Israeli-born actress Shirly Brener are making the rounds in Hollywood. The 32-year-old’s natural talents are showcased in a series of bikini and wet t-shirt photos guaranteed to get some callbacks (see gallery below).
Personally, I love how Brener looks a little awkward in some of the pics. I think you can see her bikini-clad soul die a little, especially in the shots where her legs are parted and the one where her bottom is crooked (see just below).
Brener, who was raised in London and Los Angeles, has played small roles in films such as the Jessica Simpson vehicle Employee of the Month, the Lindsay Lohan comedy Labor Pains, and the Al Pacino/Robert De Niro crime-actioner Righteous Kill.
"Does Meryl Streep do this for roles? I need new PR."
Her horror creds include the serial killer flick 30 Days to Die and The Dunwich Horror opposite Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator). She also stars alongside Playboy-model-turned-scream-queen Christa Campbell in the yet-to-be-released survival frightener Unraveled.
Unraveled follows a young group of filmmakers trying to stay alive in the mountains as a sadistic killer hunts them down to film a snuff video.
