Elisabeth Shue moving into thrilling new “House”

By Sean O’Connell Elisabeth Shue is one of those actresses who we believe should work more than she does. The Academy recognized her talents with a nomination for “Leaving Las Vegas.” She’s going to be in “Piranha 3-D” at the end of August. But to see what Shue can do, check out the amusing “Hamlet 2,” where the lovely Shue steals scenes by playing herself … a former Hollywood star masquerading as a nurse.

Today, news breaks that Shue will be appearing on screen again. She’ll star opposite Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”) and Max Thieriot (“Jumper”) in a new thriller called “House at the End of the Street,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Mark Tonderai, “House” tells the story of a teen girl (Lawrence) and her mother (Shue) who move to a house that’s located across the street from a house where a double murder took place. Complications ensue when Lawrence’s characters befriends the massacre’s sole surviving son (Thieriot).

According to the report, “House” wants to be to “Psycho” what Shi LaBeouf’s “Disturbia” was to “Rear Window.”

Production is set to start early next month in Ottawa.
