Horrorscope: Olwen Fouéré and Larsen Thompson join Jacob Batalon in horror film

Olwen Fouéré was recently seen in the horror films Texas Chainsaw Massacre and She Will, and now she has signed on to take a role in another genre project: the Screen Gems horror movie Horrorscope, which is based on a 1992 novel by Nicholas Adams. Deadline reports that Larsen Thompson (Pearl – the 2020 drama, not Ti West’s X prequel) has also been cast in Horrorscope, alongside the previously announced Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: No Way Home), Alana Boden (I Am Elizabeth Smart), Adain Bradley (Wrong Turn: The Foundation), Avantika (Senior Year), Humberly González (Ginny & Georgia), and Wolfgang Novogratz (The Last Summer). Thompson will also be seen in the upcoming Mike Flanagan / Netflix series 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.

I haven’t read Horrorscope, but the synopsis makes it sound like fun to me. I look forward to seeing how this movie is going to turn out. Have you read Horrorscope? If so, are you interested in seeing a movie based on the book? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
