More names have been added to Sam Raimi’s return to horror, the possession film Drag Me to Hell, according to The Hollywood Reporter this morning. Shooting begins on Monday in LA.
Jessica (Cloverfield) Lucas (pictured) has signed on to play the roommate of Alison Lohman’s character, who you may recall is smacked with a supernatural curse against her will. Lorna (“Boston Legal”) Raver will be playing an Eastern European woman with a strong old-school belief system who, when wronged, casts the aforementioned curse. Finally, David (Ocean’s Thirteen) Paymer will play the girl’s boss.
So I think that’s it for casting now, which is good since shooting is right around the corner. Obviously we’re keeping a very close eye on this since Raimi’s not done horror in forever outside of the mostly-lame Ghost House Pictures fare. Here’s hoping he’s learned a thing or two from it!
