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.
