Filmmaker Scott Derrickson's upcoming horror movie, Black Phone, has a new cast member. It: Chapter Two actor James Ransone has joined the cast.
Ransome previously worked with the Doctor Strange director on his Sinister movie series.
In Black Phone, the actor will feature alongside Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Davis, Mason Thames, and Madeleine McGraw.
The film is based on Joe Hill's horror novella of the same name and Derrickson will direct it from a screenplay he wrote with Robert Cargill.
The story follows a kidnapped kid who finds himself in a soundproof basement surrounded by the remains of other victims. When night falls, the antique — and disconnected — telephone in the room begins to ring with the calls from the dead.
Hawke will essay the role of the kidnapper while Thames is playing the kid. Davis will be seen as the boy's father and McGraw will portray his sister.
Derrickson and Cargill will also produce the film along with Blumhouse's Jason Blum. Hill will serve as an executive producer.
