The Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced yesterday that a new horror-thriller flick, "The Bye Bye Man," will begin filming in Cleveland in November.

The film is based on a short story called The Bridge to Body Island by Robert Damon Schneck and revolves around  three Wisconsin college students who experience a series of terrifying events. Douglas Jones, best known for his roles in "Hellboy" and "Pan's Labyrinth" has snagged the lead role, and will be accompanied on screen by Douglas SmithCressida Bonas and Lucien Laviscount. The supernatural flick will be directed by Stacy Title. 

"The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is excited that another film has decided to film here and help us continue with our mission to build a year round industry in Cleveland and Northeast, Ohio," Ivan Schwarz, President of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, said in a press release. "So far we have created 1,729 full time equivalent jobs, have had an economic impact of $400 million and a return on investment of $2.01." 

No word yet on how the filming will impact traffic patterns.
