Rectify‘s Clayne Crawford, pictured, is the latest to join Legendary Pictures’ thriller Spectral, reports Deadline.
The project, described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down, stars James Badge Dale and is being helmed by first-timer Nic Mathieu.
Crawford will play Sergeant Calvin Toll, a focused but short-fused military lifer. Earlier this month Max Martini also joined the cast.
The project originated from a pitch by Ian Fried then was scripted by George Nolfi and rewritten by John Gatins.
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.
