THR reports that “Black Sails” and Maleficent star Hannah New (pictured) has joined the cast of the thriller, which was written and directed by Myrick.

Based on true events, Under the Bed centers on a young woman (New) trying to get over a recent romantic breakup, while unbeknownst to her, an obsessed stalker befriends her on social media while taking up residence in her home.

Principal photography is set to begin sometime early this month.

Shawn Papazian is producing along with Radar Pictures’ Ted Field and Mike Weber, who developed the project, which started as a story by Myrick and producer Richard Halpern. Sobe Brook Entertainment’s Justin Shaner will executive produce with Tom Van Dell, Aldo LaPietra, and Eustace Montgomery Hicks.

Schizo Pictures and Appian Way, the production banner run by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran, are also coming on board to produce the film.
