The still-untitled body-swapping horror film from Blumhouse has expanded its cast by bringing on board Uriah Shelton (Looking for Alaska, 13 Reasons Why). According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will star opposite Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton in the upcoming feature, playing the part of the movie’s love interest, Booker.

The confirmed cast so far includes Vince Vaughn (True Detective, Wedding Crashers), Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Pokémon Detective Pikachu), Uriah Shelton (Looking for Alaska, 13 Reasons Why), and Hannah Russell.
The Happy Death Day franchise’s Christopher Landon is directing the film and co-wrote the screenplay alongside Michael Kennedy. Jason Blum is producing.
