Netflix Horror Film ‘The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy’ Adds to Expanding Cast

As the tallest giant of all internet streaming services, Netflix is adding to its growing catalog with new cast members of The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy according to Deadline.

Currently in production, the casting announcement gave word that Rachel Nichols (P2), Bob Gunton (Dead Silence), Austin Stowell (Bridge of Spies), Briana Middleton (The Tender Bar), David Walton (Bad Moms), Reese Alexander (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Peyton List (Cobra Kai) are now signed on to star in the Netflix horror film.

Directed by Alejandro Brugués and adapted from a screenplay by Chris LaMont and Joe Russo, Charles Abernathy follows a billionaire (Gunton) when on the night of his 75th birthday he invites his four estranged children to come home. Paranoid that during the night someone, or something, will come to kill him, his last-ditch effort is to convince his family to help protect him from whatever’s coming. He puts each of their inheritances on the line, where in turn they’ll get nothing if he’s killed by dawn.

Set to conclude production next month in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, a release has not yet been announced.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
