Haley Joel Osment - Haley Joel Osment Returns In 'Wake The Dead'

Haley Joel Osment, the American child-star who famously 'saw dead people' in M. Night Shyamalan's hit movie 'The Sixth Sense', has been cast in the upcoming horror movie 'Wake the Dead'. Haley Joel Osment is set to begin work on the film inspired by the graphic novel of the same name, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Haley, now 23-years-old, will reportedly play 'Victor Franklin' in the movie that follows two young medical students who attempt to bring the dead back to life. The original novel was said to be inspired by Mary Shelley's classic 'Frankenstein' tale. The young actor earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as 'Cole Sear' in 'The Sixth Sense', about an isolated boy who is able to see and talk to dead people. He also appeared opposite Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump and in Steven Spielberg's sci-fi movie 'A.I. Artificial Intelligence'. Osment began studying at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 2007, graduating last year.
Before starting work on 'Wake the Dead', Haley Joel Osment will star in the forthcoming comedy 'Sassy Pants', alongside Anna Gunn and Diedrich Bader. The movie revolves around a home-schooled child with an overbearing mother.

Did you know that Haley Joel Osment is in a new movie? He’s starring in Montana Amazon – The Adventures of the Dunderheads…alongside Academy Award and Golden Globe winner, Olympia Dukakis and Alison Brie (of NBC’s Community and AMC’s Mad Men). The next screening of the film is at the Rhode Island International Film Festival on August 14th, 2011 at 2:15 PM. Osment is playing a cute, but dumb, accidentally friend killing, teenager – Womple. Montana Amazon marks Osment’s first film since graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of Theatre.About Montana Amazon:Winning Best Feature at the Big Apple Film Festival, Montana Amazon is the story of the Dunderheads, an eccentric Montana family, who have lived in the mountains for far too long. After teenaged Womple Dunderhead (played by Haley Joel Osment) accidentally kills a friend, matriarch Grandma Ira (played by Olympia Dukakis) flees to Canada with her two wildly dysfunctional teenage grandkids, Womple and Ella (played by Alison Brie). Held together by blood, this ridiculous threesome “is not quite with the ways of the world” as Ella says. Ira is aiming for Canada, but as the road signs reveal, they are in fact heading south to Mexico. Through a typical series of Dunderhead mishaps, Montana Amazon – The Adventures of the Dunderheads is a film based on all the traditional family values – power mad parents, sadistic siblings, horny teenagers, and very strange secrets.
