Alicia Witt & Blair Underwood Join Nicolas Cage In ‘Longlegs’ Horror-Thriller
Deadline reports that Alicia Witt (I Care a Lot) and Blair Underwood (Caste) have signed on to star alongside Nicolas Cage and Maika Monroe in Longlegs — the horror-thriller from Jason Cloth and Dave Caplan’s C2 Motion Picture Group (Babylon), which Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter) is directing from his own script.
The film currently in production in Vancouver follows FBI Agent Lee Harker (Monroe), a gifted new recruit assigned to the unsolved case of an elusive serial killer (Cage). As the case takes complex turns, unearthing evidence of the occult, Harker discovers a personal connection to the merciless killer and must race against time to stop him before he claims the lives of another innocent family.
C2 Motion Picture Group is producing and fully financing Longlegs, with Cage and his production company Saturn Films (The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Pig), Dan Kagan (Significant Other), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Insidious, Sinister), Caplan (Babylon) and Chris Ferguson (Child’s Play) also producing. Exec producers on the project include Cloth (Joker, House of Gucci), Fred Berger (La La Land), and John Friedberg (Greenland).
Black Bear International will release Longlegs in the UK and recently closed assorted international deals for the film at EFM including Metropolitan for France, DCM for Germany, Rialto for Australia, DeaPlaneta for Spain, Sun for Latin America, and Scanbox for Scandinavia, to name a few. UTA Independent Film Group and CAA Media Finance repped domestic rights — and while Neon was closing in on them as of two weeks ago, whether the deal is locked is not yet clear.
