Ready or Not’s Samara Weaving has been brought on board for the upcoming action-horror movie, Azrael.
The news comes to us via Deadline, who report that the Australian actress is set to lead the movie, which is already being eyed by producers as a franchise. Simon Barrett – writer of the slick home-invasion horror You’re Next, and the upcoming Godzilla vs Kong sequel – pens the script.
According to Deadline, “story details are being kept under wraps on this one, but we know that Joker financier Jason Cloth and his C2 Motion Picture Group partner Dave Caplan (The End We Start From) recently won the rights in a competitive situation and will finance and produce.”
Evan Katz (Haunting Of Bly Manor) is tasked with directing the film, with principal photography slated to begin in Estonia, this October.
