Earlier this week we let you guys know that the Guillermo del Toro-produced Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is all set to begin filming very soon. And today we have an update on the cast and the film’s central plot.
“Colletti will play Stella Michaels, a young girl still haunted by her mother’s disappearance on Halloween night — an incident that she suspects her father knows more about than he lets on. Years later, Stella and her friends are involved in a Halloween prank gone wrong. But are they really at fault, or was it the work of a vengeful spirit — a female ghost who uses her scary stories to come after the teens when they begin to investigate the disappearance of several children?”
Andre Ovredal directs the film from a script written by Guillermo del Toro, Daniel Hageman, and Kevin Hageman based on Alvin Schwartz’s internationally best-selling book series. Del Toro will produce the film along with Sean Daniel, Elizabeth Grave, Jason F. Brown and J. Miles Dale. CBS Films distributes domestically via Lionsgate.
It will be shot in Toronto next week!
The film follows a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding sudden and macabre deaths in their small town.
