Bryce Dallas Howard confirmed to us that she will play a role in Clint Eastwood's upcoming thriller Hereafter, which may have supernatural elements.

Speaking to reporters last week in Los Angeles, where she was promoting The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, Howard wasn't sure she should say much at all.

"Oh, goodness, that's actually the first question I've had about that," Howard said. "I want to be careful because I haven't spoken to anyone on the film, as far as what I can share. I'm really going to be totally vague, because I don't want to speak out of turn. I just got hired."

Howard hinted that Eastwood's film, described as a supernatural thriller, would enter scary territory. "Oh, possibly," she teased.

Eastwood has been equally coy about the film. "It's a story that's actually three stories of people who have had traumatic experiences in their life," he told MTV, adding, "and how these stories converge towards one another. It ends up with all three stories culminating in one big sequence."

The screenwriter is Peter Morgan, who also wrote The Queen and Frost/Nixon and will receive a writing credit on the next James Bond movie.
