LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Gossip Girl" actor Sebastian Stan will star opposite Ashley Green in "The Apparition," a supernatural horror project.

Rookie filmmaker Todd Lincoln is directing from his own script -- which is said to be inspired by true events -- for Dark Castle Entertainment, the label behind such films as "Orphan" and "Ninja Assassin."

The story revolves around a couple haunted by a supernatural presence unleashed during a college experiment. Shooting is scheduled to begin February 1 in Germany.

The lead is the biggest movie part yet for Stan, who plays Carter Baizen on CW's "Gossip Girl." He just wrapped shooting Darren Aronofsky's thriller "Black Swan" and will appear in the John Cusack comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine."
