M. Night Shyamalan has added a new cast member to his upcoming event series Wayward Pines, which will now star Oscar winner Melissa Leo.

Wayward Pines is based off of the best selling novel of the same name from writer Blake Crouch.  The drama tells the story of Ethan Burke, an agent of the Secret Service who is on a mission to find two missing federal agents, when he finds himself in Wayword Pines, ID.  He begins to unravel the mysteries of Wayword Pines instead of finding the answers he is searching for.

Leo will play the role of Pam, an unpredictable nurse who first takes care of Ethan at the Wayward Pines hospital, but soon becomes Ethan's deadliest foe.

Leo previously starred in The Fighter, and was recently seen in theaters via Oblivion.

Wayward Pines is on schedule to premiere in fall 2014.
