Expanding Chinese mini-studio Vision Film has acquired mainland China rights to upcoming horror-thriller “Ghosts of War.” Directed by Eric Bress, the film is currently in post-production and is expected to hit Chinese theaters at the end of the year.

“Ghosts” follows five battle-hardened American soldiers who are assigned, near the end of World War II, to hold a French chateau formerly occupied by the Nazi high command. The mission quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield.

The film stars Brenton Thwaites (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “Maleficent”), Theo Rossi (“Sons of Anarchy”), Skylar Astin (“Pitch Perfect 1 & 2”), Kyle Gallner (“American Sniper”), and Alan Ritchson (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”), alongside Shaun Toub (“Iron Man”) and Billy Zane.

Brenton Thwaites Not Returning for ‘Maleficent 2’

written by Jasper III.V

Brenton portrayed the role of Prince Phillip in the 2014 film, Maleficent. Production on the sequel is set to start this year as more cast additions get announced. Unfortunately, Brenton won’t be able to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts with the series, Titans. Harris Dickinson has been cast to replace Brenton for the role.

VARIETY – Harris Dickinson, who portrays J. Paul Getty III in FX’s limited series “Trust,” is set to play the prince and love interest of Elle Fanning in Disney’s “Maleficent 2.”

Angelina Jolie will return to star as the title character with Michelle Pfeiffer in negotiations to play Dickinson’s mother, and Ed Skrein on board to play one of the the villains. Dickinson’s role was played by Brenton Thwaites in the first pic, but due to schedule conflicts with his TV show “Titans,” where he plays Dick Grayson/Robin, he was unable to return for the role.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” helmer Joachim Ronning is set to direct.

Per Deadline, Brenton has been cast as one of the leads in the crime-thriller, A Violent Separation. Also set to star are Ben Robson (known for TNT’s Animal Kingdom), Alycia Debnam-Carey (known for AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead), and Claire Holt (known for CW’s The Originals).

Written by Michael Arkof, A Violent Separation tells the story of a quiet Midwestern town, where Norman (Thwaites), a young deputy sheriff, covers up a murder at the hands of his older brother, Ray (Robson), but neither of the young men are prepared for what’s to come, including the passionate romance that blossoms between Norman and the victim’s younger sister, Frances (Debnam-Carey). As the investigation wears on, family bonds are tested as we descend into the depths of morality and loyalty and are forced to bear witness to the violent separation of flesh and blood with everyone desperately trying to do the right thing, all while doing the wrong.
