Blumhouse and Sony Pictures’ Fantasy Island has booked more guests, including Michael Rooker (SLiTHER, Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2, pictured in “The Walking Dead”, HBO’s “True Detective” Season 3), Charlotte McKinney (pictured below; Flatliners, Baywatch), Parisa Fitz-Henley (“Luke Cage”, “Jessica Jones”), and Austin Stowell (“Catch 22”, “Battle of the Sexes”), reports Deadline.
The forthcoming adaptation of the ABC long-running series from the ’80s is “horror-tinged”, while our sources tell us that the adaptation is similar to the show except that someone is killing guests of the island.
Lucy Hale (Truth or Dare) stars with Michael Pena (below in End of Watch), who’ll play Mr. Roarke, the host of the enigmatic isle and Crazy Rich Asians’ Jimmy O. Yang. Hale plays one of the guests who is anxious to see her fantasy realized. Roarke warns guests that their fantasies may not play out as expected.
Truth or Dare’s Jeff Wadlow is directing from a script written by him and Truth or Dare co-scribes Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs.
It is set to open in theaters February 28, 2020.
