    PITTSBURGH,None - It came and went without much fanfare but another star-studded movie just finished shooting in Pittsburgh.

    The horror movie, "Sibling," stars Mischa Barton, Michael Clarke Duncan and Devon Sawa and was filmed almost exclusively at the former Knoxville Middle School for about 20 days in December.

    Co-producer Amanda McBride told See & Be Seen that the majority of the story takes place in the school, starting during the school day and going into the late hours of the night.

    Channel 11's partners at The Tribune-Review visited the set and snapped some great photos.

    Sibling is directed by Matt Orlando and is produced by Pittsburgh native Brian Hartman.

    Hartman also produced locally filmed movies "Riddle," with Val Kilmer, and "The Bridge To Nowhere" with Ving Rhames.

    Joining Hartman as producers were Phillip Glasser and Aaron Levin.

    "Our veteran Pittsburgh crew finished this one out after a long year filled with multiple large studio productions, and quite a few local Indie films as well. Many rolled over from a film in November, without a single day off," McBride said.

    While he was in town, actor Devon Sawa tweeted about everything from the Winter Classic to his quest for an unusual Pittsburgh souvenir. He was looking for a snow globe and posted a picture of one he purchased.

    Sawa, a native of Canada, tweeted, "24/7 has made me feel like I'm 14 again. This Winter Classic coverage is exciting. They've captured the feeling of hockey."

    "It was a pleasure working with stars Mischa Barton, Michael Clarke Duncan and Devon Sawa. Each of the three had a close friend come out to Pittsburgh with them to be witness to Pittsburgh's movie making magic," McBride told See & Be Seen.

    Additional out-of-town cast members included J Michael Troutman, Nick Jandl and Stuart Stone. McBride said Pittsburgh's local talent also had a lot to offer.

    "We held casting in both LA and Pittsburgh, and found quite a few of our main roles best fit by local talent, which was simply wonderful. Not only is Pittsburgh well versed on the production side of movie making, we are really turning out talented actors as well," McBride said.

    According to The Trib, the producers plan to sell "Sibling" in May at the Cannes International Film Festival in France.
