Mathieu Kassovitz is to direct Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz in the supernatural thriller Gothika, according to Variety.

Berry will play a criminal psychologist who awakens to find herself a patient in her own mental institution, unable to remember a murder she supposedly committed. She is victimized by a vengeful spirit in the asylum. Cruz plays a fellow inmate.

Kassovitz is best known for directing 'La Haine' and the Jean Reno starrer 'The Crimson Rivers'. He has also starred in movies like 'Amelie' and the politically charged 'Amen'.

Filming is expected to begin in April and will be hitting theaters for Halloween.
