It seems that Legendary's upcoming supernatural thriller SPECTRAL gets more interesting by the day as it was only yesterday that we learned that STAR TREK's Bruce Greenwood had signed on for a role in Nic Mathieu's feature length debut, and today we've learned that "Rectify" star Clayne Crawford has now locked in a part, set to co-star alongside the previously announced James Badge Dale, Cory Hardrict, and Max Martini in the tale that's been described as a 'supernatural BLACK HAWK DOWN'.
As previously reported, the premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural. Sources say the pitch has been described as a darker and more serious take on a Ghostbusters-like story, with a plot that revolves around a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan.
Crawford will play Sergeant Calvin Toll, a focused but short-fused military lifer.
