We got excited when we saw the first half of the news on MTV Movies site: Papa Roach Singer Gets Throat Slashed In Lou... - but then, as we were wondering why they couldn't spell loo properly, we clicked on the link and got to a page with the rest of the headline on it: ...Diamond Phillips Movie.

Mind you, when people hear Jacoby Shaddix talking about the acting role, he might put himself just inches away from the original headline:

"I literally live 10 minutes from where the set is [in Sacramento, California], so it's crazy how it all works out," he said.

The supernatural thriller also stars Pam Grier and Lou Diamond Phillips.

"Growing up and watching 'Young Guns' and 'La Bamba,' please believe I was stoked when I heard his name," Shaddix said of "LDP." "I met Lou Diamond and he's just like, 'Go make history, kid,' and I was like, 'OK, here we go.' "

Shaddix plays an artist whose wife finds a Ouija board in their new home, at which point the "shit hits the fan."

"I'll be honest with you, I didn't read the whole entire script so I don't know exactly all the twists and turns, but it seems really cool," he said. "It's got a lot of flashbacks and stuff like that. It's based around a Ouji board that kind of like possesses people."

Well, why would you need to read the whole script, eh? It sounds cool, with all its flashbacks and stuff. And how convenient that the film set was near your house; you wouldn't want to have to make any sort of sodding effort like getting on a bus or something, would you?

Larry Olivier is sobbing in heaven.
