US rights to the psychological horror film Warhouse have just been picked up by XLRator Media, and the film is now on track for release in the States later this year. The film stars Joseph Morgan, best known as Klaus in The Vampire Diaries, as well as its upcoming spin-off pilot The Originals.
Written and directed by Luke Massey, Warhouse is the story of Royal Marine A.J. Budd (Morgan) who awakens alone and imprisoned in a mysterious house, where he must do battle with monstrous enemies in order to survive. His only hope lies in the writings of Lieutenant Sterling (Matt Ryan), an officer in World War I who faced the same predicament ages ago. The two men's tales intertwine as the bloody secret of the Warhouse unfolds.
You can see Morgan in the New Orleans-based pilot episode of The Originals when it premieres on the CW tomorrow night.
