The new AMITYVILLE film is full-steam ahead with MANIAC director Franck Khalfoun taking the helm and Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bella Thorne and Cameron Monaghan all reportedly signing on for some haunted happenings in the Blumhouse production. Now we've got some more casting to share with you as Bloody Disgusting is reporting that "Young and the Restless" actress McKenna Grace has joined the cast of AMITYVILLE, set to play the youngest daughter of Leigh's character.
According to earlier reports Leigh will be playing...
...Joan, a single mother raising three kids all on her own. The family move into the infamous “Amityville” house, only to learn that it has a very dark history.
Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse Productions along with Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands, while Matthew Stein and Alix Taylor will executive produce.
Dimension had planned on reigniting the popular AMITYVILLE horror franchise using a found-footage angle but that idea has been dropped in favor of a fresher take. The film is set to be distributed January 2, 2015 by TWC-Dimension.
