The more strangers, the merrier.
The Lionsgate remake of the 2008 horror feature The Strangers has added another actor to its ensemble cast, according to a report on Deadline.
The film–which recently wrapped shooting in Slovakia–this week signed Rachel Shenton (All Creatures Great and Small) to join previously announced cast members Ema Horvath, Madelaine Petsch, Froy Gutierrez and Gabriel Basso. Shenton will play Debbie, the sister of Petsch’s character.
The new pic–expected to grow into a trilogy–is directed by Renny Harlin (A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master) from a screenplay by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland.
This remake follows Petsch’s character as she drives cross-country with her boyfriend (Gutierrez) to start a new life in the Pacific Northwest. But, when their car breaks down in Oregon, they’re forced to “spend the night in a secluded Airbnb, where they’re terrorized from dusk till dawn by three masked strangers,” according to the synopsis.
The original The Strangers–from writer/director Bryan Bertino–stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple contending with a frightening home invasion. The sleeper hit gave birth to a 2018 sequel, The Strangers: Prey at Night.
