Horrorscope: Harriet Slater of Pennyworth joins Jacob Batalon in Screen Gems horror film

Fresh off of working with Erin Moriarty of The Boys and Jamie Campbell Bower of Stranger Things on the horror film True Haunting, Harriet Slater – who is probably best known at this point for playing the role of Sandra Onslow on 19 episodes of the Pennyworth TV series – has signed on to join Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: No Way Home) in the cast of the Screen Gems horror movie Horrorscope. The news of Slater’s casting was first reported by Deadline.

Based on a 1992 novel by Nicholas Adams, Horrorscope also stars Alana Boden (I Am Elizabeth Smart), Adain Bradley (Wrong Turn: The Foundation), Avantika (Senior Year), Humberly González (Ginny & Georgia), Wolfgang Novogratz (The Last Summer), Olwen Fouéré (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Larsen Thompson (The Midnight Club).

Anna Halberg and Spenser Cohen have written the screenplay adaptation and will also be making their feature directorial debut with Horrorscope, which will follow

a group of college friends who after getting their horoscopes read, begin dying in ways connected to their fortunes. Are their fates fatal or can they change what’s written in the stars?

Coming to us from Screen Gems and Alloy Entertainment, Horrorscope is being produced by Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton, along with Scott Glassgold of Ground Control. Cohen and Halberg serve as executive producers. Scott Strauss, Michael Bitar, and Lariah Perara are overseeing the project for Screen Gems.

Cohen previously contributed to the screenplays for Extinction, Moonfall, and the upcoming The Expendables 4. With Halberg, he has written the upcoming movie Ivy and the podcast series Classified.

Details on the characters Harriet Slater and the rest of the cast members will be playing in Horrorscope are being kept under wraps.
