Source: International Media Global Ltd., TV Guide

Directed by: Mans Marlind and
Bjorn Stein (Storm)
Written by: Michael Cooney (Identity)
Produced by: Macari Edelstein Films (Amusement, The Invisible, The Ring) and Nala Films (In The Valley of Elah, Dan In Real Life, The Air I Breathe)
Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore (Children of Men, The Hours, Boogie Nights)
Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Match Point, Mission Impossible III)
Single mother and dedicated psychiatrist Cara Jessup (Julianne Moore) centers her professional reputation on debunking the idea of multiple personality syndrome, until she encounters a criminal mental patient (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) whose powers defy rational explanation. This eerie contact with evil shatters her world, turning a cynic into an embattled true believer. The entity that inhabits the patient is eventually revealed to be a demonic preacher, stealing the souls of the dead in a grim, ageless obsession with sheltering the faithless. When a soul theft results in the loss of Cara's father, Cara intuits that her own daughter is next and narrowly saves her from the brink of death. But is any victory in this arena ever certain? Directed by the innovative team of Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein (Storm), and giving a mountain voodoo tinge to the occult genre, SHELTER is a sophisticated and disturbing voyage into the heart of darkness. Producers Macari and Edelstein (whose credits include Mulholland Drive and The Ring) will bring their unique brand of psychological spine chilling to the big screen once again in 2008. [Link]
Also, in addition to his appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Jonathan is scheduled to appear on Live with Regis and Kelly Monday, May 19th to promote The Children of Huang Shi. Check your local listings for time and channel.
