N ORDER FOR ONE FAMILY TO HAVE A FUTURE, THEY MUST FIRST ESCAPE THEIR PAST
Jason Hawkins (Netflix’ Haunted, The Last Slay Ride) will be writing and directing a new horror franchise with the first of three films scheduled to begin shooting in March 2022 in the Pacific NW. The films will be produced by Mr. Hawkins’ production company Cinema Drifter, in association with AKA Productions, Hestehaven, and Rokitpig. The first film, Ouija: The Darkness Within, is slated to star Elissa Dowling (The Girl on the Third Floor, We Are Still Here), Sanae Loutsis (Beloved Beast, The Black String) and newcomer Holland Havarah Elizabeth.
All three films of the franchise are set to be shot during 2022, with the first film expected to have a release date in October of that same year.
The franchise tells the story of the Baker family, a mother and her two teenage daughters, as they attempt to escape a traumatic event in their past by settling into a new life in a small town. But one daughter’s refusal to let go of the past causes a chain reaction that sees the past and present collide in a night of terror that could destroy them all.
Casting for the films is scheduled to begin in January next year.
