Ethan Hawke Joins ‘The Black Phone’ For Blumhouse And Universal

Ethan Hawke will be appearing in yet another Blumhouse film as the acclaimed actor has joined the cast of The Black Phone for Blumhouse and Universal.

Scott Derrickson (Dr. Strange, Sinister) will helm the picture which is described as: John Finney is in trouble. The kidnapper locked him in a basement, a place stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children. With him in his subterranean cell is an antique phone, long since disconnected…but which rings at night, anyway, with calls from the dead.

Ethan Hawke is a four-time Academy Award-nominated actor and screenwriter.  He can be seen in multiple genre films including The Purge, Sinister, Daybreakers and Regression.

Hawke will be appearing as a villain in the upcoming Moon Knight series from Disney +. In addition, he will be appearing alongside Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard in the Robert Egger’s film The Northman as well as Abel Ferrara’s upcoming film Zeros and Ones.

The film is slated to begin production next month in North Carolina. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on The Black Phone.
