LOS ANGELES, March 14 (UPI) -- Hilary Swank will follow up her Oscar-winning performance in "Million Dollar Baby" with the supernatural thriller "The Reaping."

Daily Variety said Swank will star as a specialist in debunking supernatural phenomena who is summoned to a small town that seems to be experiencing the 10 plagues -- a series of plagues that befell Egypt in the biblical story of Moses.

Joel Silver and Robert Zemeckis are producing "The Reaping" for Warner Bros. through their Dark Castle horror production company. James Cox ("Wonderland") is directing.

Dark Castle -- established by Silver and Zemeckis in 1999 -- has turned out "Gothika," "Ghost Ship," "13 Ghosts," "The House on Haunted Hill" and the upcoming "House of Wax."
