My Sister's Keeper actor Jason Patric has joined the cast of Hotel 33 after negotiations for Nicolas Cage to land the leading role fell through.

The 47-year-old actor has signed up to star in the upcoming horror- thriller project by Open Road Films, which will start production in January, according to Variety.

Hotel 33 centres on a detective from a small town in Pennsylvania, who interrogates a college student in relation to the disappearance of his friend at a haunted hotel, where many people also went missing in 1953.

Tove Christensen of Glacier Films will produce the movie alongside Brandon Grimes and Tim Sullivan, while Kellie Madison will make her directorial debut as well as penning the screenplay.
