Horror role for Ally McBeal star

Ally McBeal star Portia de Rossi has been added to the cast of Wes Craven's latest horror movie Cursed.

She joins Christina Ricci, Shannon Elizabeth and Scott Foley in the film, which is set to begin shooting this month.

Set in Los Angeles, the story unfolds when a werewolf attack unites three strangers who must fight for survival against the beast and its curse.

De Rossi will appear in the film's opening sequence, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, from the Scream team of Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, was put on hold over the summer so filmmakers could plan more special effects and develop the ending.
