Maggie Gyllenhaal hears the “Voices From the Stone”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn’t work as frequently as her brother, Jake, but when she chooses a project – be it an indie like “Sherrybaby” or a blockbuster like “The Dark Knight” – it usually has meaning.
So we’re immediately paying close attention to “Voice From the Stone,” a supernatural thriller directed by Eric Howell that has lured the leading lady, according to Variety.
As the trade puts it, Gyllenhaal would play a nurse “drawn to the aid of a young boy who is haunted by malevolent forces within the walls of an old house in the Italian countryside.”
Sounds reminiscent of “The Orphanage,” which was brilliant. Dean Zanuck and Stefano Gallini are on the hook to produce “Voices,” which is based on the Italian novel “Le Voce Della Pietra” by Silvio Raffo.
