Just floating into the inbox was a press release signalling the start of production on "Gothika", Dark Castle Entertainment’s supernatural thriller starring Oscar-winner Halle Berry, Penelope Cruz, Robert Downey Jr. and Charles S. Dutton. The film commenced principal photography on location in Montreal on April 10.

A Dark Castle Entertainment production for Warner Bros. Pictures and Columbia Pictures, Gothika is produced by Joel Silver, Robert Zemeckis and Susan Levin and directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, from a screenplay by Sebastian Gutierrez. Steve Richards, Don Carmody and Gary Ungar are the film’s executive producers, and Richard Mirisch serves as co-producer.

Gothika tells the story of Dr. Miranda Grey (Berry), a dedicated and successful criminal psychologist who awakens to find herself a patient in her own mental institution with no memory of the murder she’s apparently committed. She soon learns that her husband was brutally murdered three days earlier, and the bloody evidence points directly at her. With no memory of that night except for a cryptic encounter with a mysterious young girl, the doctor’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic. Her claims of innocence are seen by her friends, colleagues and former patients as the beginnings of a deep descent into madness. As Miranda struggles to reclaim her sanity she soon realizes she’s become the pawn of a vengeful spirit. Now she must quickly determine if she is being led further from her sanity or closer to the truth.

This supernatural thriller also stars Penelope Cruz who plays Chloe, a hauntingly beautiful yet dangerously disturbed young patient; Oscar-nominee Robert Downey Jr. portrays Dr. Pete Graham, Berry’s skeptical colleague and friend; and Emmy Award-winning actor-director Charles S. Dutton plays Dr. Doug Grey, Berry’s husband and chief administrator of the prison psychiatric ward.

Gothika will shoot on location in and around the Montreal area for nine weeks and is scheduled for release in October 2003. The film will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and internationally by Columbia Pictures
