Sahay will play Eric Sarin, a member of an investigative team looking into the murder of an American family in Paris.

The script comes from Bell and Matt Peterman, who co-wrote "The Devil Inside," with Bell directing.

“At first I struggled making the decision to do the film because I was offered a TV pilot and have had a great experience with television,” Sahay said in a statement. “But I haven’t done much horror in the past and thanks to William and Matt’s script, I will be taken back into dramatic water after many wonderful years in comedy.”

“WER,” produced by FilmDistrict, Sierra/Affinity and Incentive Filmed Entertainment, already started shooting in Bucharest.
