The Hollywood Reporter
Nothing tickles my fancy more than horror movies about horror movies, and Sony’s The Final Girls seems tailor-made for fans like ourselves. A handful of new actors have joined the flick so read on for full details!
THR reports that Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”), Nina Dobrev (pictured; “The Vampire Diaries”), Adam Devine (“Workaholics”), and Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) have all signed on for roles in the horror-comedy, joining the previously announced Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”) and Malin Akerman (Watchmen).
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson, the film centers on a girl (Farmiga) who, along with her friends, is mysteriously transported into the world of an iconic ’80s horror flick, which starred her recently deceased mother (Akerman), a famous scream queen. The group must try to survive the movie and defeat its crazed killer.
Middleditch will play a film geek for whom landing in a classic horror flick is a dream come true until it turns into a nightmare. Dobrev will play the alpha ex-best friend. Ludwig will act as Farmiga’s love interest while Devine will be the movie-within-a-movie’s appointed teen seducer.
Mark Fortin and Joshua John Miller wrote the script. Michael London and Janice Williams are producing via their Groundswell Productions banner.
Production on the film, which SPWA acquired in February, is taking place in Louisiana.
