Catalina Sandino Moreno could be called “The Replacement”…
The 32-year-old Colombian actress will star opposite Aaron Eckhart in Incarnate, the new franchise hopeful from Jason Blum‘s Blumhouse Productions.
Rosario Dawson was initially cast to play the role, but the Sin City and Seven Pounds actress left the project due to scheduling reasons.
The film is set to begin production in November in Los Angeles.
Brad Peyton is directing the micro-budget film, which tells of “an unconventional exorcist — with the ability to tap into the subconscious of the possessed — who meets his match when a 9-year-old boy is possessed by a demon from his past,” according to Blumhouse.
Moreno broke into the industry with her acclaimed performance in 2004’s Maria Full of Grace, a role that earned her an Oscar nomination.
She most recently was one of the stars of FX’s crime show The Bridge and counts, among her feature credits, Steven Soderbergh’s two-part Che films.
