Stars from Westworld and Parks and Recreation are teaming up for a new thriller.

Variety reports Angela Sarafyan and Paul Schneider have been cast in Blumhouse and streaming service Epix's forthcoming film, A House on the Bayou.

The straight-to-service movie follows a troubled couple who decide to vacation in an isolated home along the Louisiana Bayou to reconnect with their teenage daughter.

However, the arrival of unexpected visitors sees the family's facade of unity quickly dissolve as terrifying secrets emerge.
