Diane Guerrero is set to lead horror movie “The Whistler” alongside Juan Pablo Raba.

The film, which has started shooting in Cali, Colombia, tells the story of grieving parents Nicole and Sebastian. Still reeling from losing their daughter, the couple unexpectedly inherit a remote farm in the Venezuelan plains where they are soon drawn into a nether world.

Diego Velasco (“This Fool”) is directing from a script by Carolina Paiz (“Orange Is The New Black”).

“Nicole and Sebastian arrive to find the farm overrun by mysterious squatters who claim they can conjure spirits,” reads the logline. “As Sebastian attempts to violently run them out, Nicole is lured into their world, desperate to contact her dead daughter…forcing the couple to deal not only with the spirit world, but their own inner demons.”

Hideout Pictures are producing the pic. Trevor O’Neil and Margaret Miller are producers with Shannon Houchins, Potsy Ponciroli and Noor Ahmed serving as executive producers. Guerrero and Raba are also on board as exec producers.

“I’m beyond excited to be at the helm of ‘The Whistler,’ a project that delves deep into themes of loss, spirituality, and the unknown,” said Velasco. “With the remarkable talents of Diane Guerrero and Juan Pablo Raba leading our cast, we’re set to embark on a journey that transcends the ordinary, delving into the profound mysteries of existence amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the South America where I grew up.”

Guerrero added: “Being part of this team and diving into such an incredible world has been a treasured experience. Working under the direction of Diego Velasco and alongside Juan Pablo Raba, I am thrilled to tell a story that is anything but ordinary. We navigate some profound questions of life, all set amidst the magnificent landscapes of South America. It’s a journey I’ve been eagerly preparing for, and I can’t wait to see where it takes us.”
