Katie Holmes really seems to be experimenting with her career right now.

After trying her hand on Broadway, she’s just signed on for a movie with notoriously bizarre director Guillermo del Toro.

Katie’s rep has confirmed to E! News that the star, who recently wrapped The Extra Man, will be starring in a thriller written by the guy behind the quirky Hellboy series and The Hobbit.

According to the site, Afraid of the Dark will be an "adrenaline pumping flick" base on a 1973 TV movie about a girl who moves in with her dad and his girlfriend — only to discover they’re sharing the house with something mysterious.

Apparently Katie will be shooting the movie in Australia. We wonder if she’ll be swimming in that magical pregnancy pool that got her husband’s ex, Nicole Kidman, knocked up!
