Scoot McNairy Joins Blumhouse and Universal’s ‘Speak No Evil’ Remake




James Watkins (The Woman in Black, Eden Lake) is helming Speak No Evil for Blumhouse and Universal, and Deadline reports tonight that Scoot McNairy (Argo) has joined the cast. The film is an adaptation of the scary Danish horror film from last year. James McAvoy (Split, Glass) and Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, Happiest Season) will also star.

On August 9, 2024, Speak No Evil will be released by Universal in theaters.

According to Deadline, “A Danish family meets a Dutch family while on vacation in the original 2022 film. As the Danes attempt to maintain their composure in the face of discomfort, what was supposed to be a beautiful weekend slowly begins to fall apart.

The remake of Speak No Evil’s script was likewise written by James Watkins.

The planned movie will be directed by Jason Blum for Blumhouse, with executive producers Paul Ritchie, Christian Tafdrup, Jacob Jarek, and Bea Sequeira.

This claustrophobic character study eerily investigates the nature of evil and the unsettling reality that there doesn’t always need to be a reason for wickedness, praised by Daniel Kurland about the incredibly distressing Danish nightmare. Every tense moment of silence in Speak No Evil feels like it could develop into a completely different kind of terror, making it feel like the twisted Danish cousin to Barbarian.
