Gillian Jacobs' upcoming horror film, Come Play, is set to hit Indian screens on November 27. Also starring John Gallagher Jr, Azhy Robertson, and Winslow Fegley, Come Play is directed by Jacob Chase and backed by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Partners and Reliance Entertainment. 

The film follows two parents as they attempt to protect their young son from getting abducted by a villainous humanoid creature. Newcomer Robertson stars as Oliver, a lonely young boy who feels different from everyone else. Desperate for a friend, he seeks solace in his phone and tablet. It is then that a mysterious creature uses Oliver's devices to enter the world, following which Oliver's parents (Gillian and Gallagher Jr) must fight to save their son from the monster.

"It appealed to me greatly to do a genre that I haven't done much in the past. I was in a Blumhouse movie, and I did something that was more of a horror-comedy, this movie Bad Milo, but I haven't been in a movie quite like this," Gillian told Collider while talking about the film.

"As an actor, I'm always looking to do something that I haven't done recently. And then, I met Jacob (Chase), the writer/director, and I thought he was so smart and such a nice person. I really respected him as a director and I thought his idea to have a puppet for Larry, to do it as a practical effect rather than CGI, was really brilliant. That's what sold me. Jacob loves haunted houses and making horror films but he is the sweetest, nicest guy," she added.
