He sees dead people! Only this time they’re all cobbled together and brought back to life for Haley Joel Osment’s Frankenstein movie Wake The Dead. The Sixth Sense star is slated to appear in the upcoming horror film as Victor Franklin (get it?), a college student who goes all mad scientist in his attempts to re-animate the deceased. So basically we’re looking at Weekend at Bernie’s 3: Freshman Year. Victor better pray that the varsity calypso band isn’t practicing down the hall from his lab, or that monster is out of there.
If that doesn’t sound spooky/random enough for you, for some reason Slash will be producing the film. It’s been a while since Haley’s last feature film, 2007’s Home of the Giants, though he has both Sassy Pants and Montana Amazon with Alison Brie slated to come out this year. Maybe Osment’s next film can following the horrifying tale of a boy who’s body ages, but who’s face remains in the pristine, doll-like state it was in when he was seven. It’ll be called The Haley Joel Osment Story.
