James Wan is gearing up production on his upcoming top-secret horror project, now officially titled Malignant, which originally had a working title of “Silvercup.” Said to be a return to his indie horror roots, the film’s cast continues to grow with two more actresses coming on board. According to Deadline, the project is welcoming Michole Briana White (Lila & Eve, Spell) and Jacqueline McKenzie (Pine Gap, Deep Blue Sea) into the fold with principal photography now underway.
The actresses join previously-announced stars Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation), George Young (The CW’s Containment), Jake Abel (Supernatural), and Maddie Hasson (Impulse, Mr. Mercedes). Specific character details are not yet available at this time.
The specifics of this project still very much remain a mystery, with plot details being kept heavily under wraps, but on top of directing, Wan also co-wrote alongside Ingrid Bisu (The Nun). The film is being produced via the Atomic Monster banner, which is led by the director and longtime collaborator Michael Clear. Financing are Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will retain distributing rights in China.
Production on Malignant is now underway in Los Angeles and should be complete before Wan moves forward on Aquaman 2 next year. As previously mentioned, details are still fairly slim right now, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest here on Dead Entertainment.
