‘Until Dawn’ Horror Movie Cast Features ‘Hellraiser’ Star Odessa A’zion

Supermassive’s hit video game Until Dawn is headed to the big screen with a horror movie adaptation from director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle Creation, Shazam), and Deadline brings us the very first round of casting news this afternoon.

Ella Rubin (The Idea of You), Michael Cimino (“Never Have I Ever”), Ji-young Yoo (“Expats”) and Odessa A’zion (Hulu’s Hellraiser) will star in the upcoming horror film.

“At PlayStation Productions, we are always looking to find creative and authentic ways to adapt our beloved games that our fans will enjoy. Alongside Screen Gems, we’ve assembled a fantastic cast of new characters that builds upon our already stellar filmmaking team and their vision for the adaptation. We’re excited to reveal more about the movie soon,” Asad Qizilbash, Head of PlayStation Productions, Head of Product for PlayStation Studios, Sony Interactive Entertainment, said in a statement shared by Deadline today.

Blair Butler (The Invitation) wrote the original draft, and Gary Dauberman (Salem’s Lot) is now working on the script. The film is said to be “an R-rated love letter to the horror genre.”

Until Dawn centers around a group of eight teenagers who decide to vacation for a night in a cabin on the fictional Blackwood Mountain, exactly one year after the disappearance of two girls, the twin sisters of a member of their group. Shortly after arriving, the gang find themselves under attack by a psychopath, and must attempt to survive until sunrise.

Throughout the adventure, players alternate between all eight characters, making critical decisions as the story advances which drastically affects the game’s outcome, leading to hundreds of different scenarios.

The Until Dawn movie is being made by Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions.

Producers include Dauberman, Sandberg and Lotta Losten, as well as Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment, and PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan.

The success of Until Dawn led Supermassive Games to create The Dark Pictures Anthology, an anthology series of horror video games with a similar interactive approach.

Supermassive was also behind the slasher video game The Quarry.
