Los Angeles, Nov 13 (PTI) 'Fast and Furious' star Jordana Brewster has been cast opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the screen adaptation of horror novel 'Shrine'.

According to Deadline, the details of Brewster's characters are unknown.

The film, to be written and directed by Evan Spiliotopoulos, is Morgan's return to the horror genre.

The actor, who has featured in popular horror series 'The Walking Dead' and 'Supernatural', will play the lead role in the project, produced by Screen Gems.
