Frank Grillo to Court Stephanie

As far as we’re concerned Frank Grillo should be in every movie from now until the end of time. That’s part of the reason we’re excited that he’s doing another horror flick! So good to have you, Frankie!

According to The Wrap Grillo is set to star in Akiva Goldsman‘s horror-thriller Stephanie, which Universal Pictures has acquired from Jason Blum‘s Blumhouse Productions and Matt Kaplan’s Chapter One.

First announced last summer, the film was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, whose script was voted to the 2012 Blood List.

Abandoned by her parents in their remote home, Stephanie survives on peanut butter and conversations with her toy turtle, while a dark supernatural force looms in the background. When her mother and father return to claim her, the malevolent power spins out of control with Stephanie at the center.
