Deadline reports that the cast of Mike Flanagan’s horror sequel, Ouija 2, is filling out nicely. One big addition to the cast is Doug Jones, who has appeared in well over 100 films and TV shows, including Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Falling Skies and the upcoming haunted house horror Crimson Peak.
Parker Mack (MTV’s Faking It), Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel (Demon Legacy) and Doug Jones (Falling Skies) join the previously announced Henry Thomas (Betrayal), Annalise Basso (Oculus), Elizabeth Reaser (True Detective) and Lulu Wilson (Deliver Us From Evil).
Flanagan, taking over the directing spot from the first film’s Stiles White, will write the screenplay with Jeff Howard (Oculus).
Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing for Platinum Dunes while Jason Blum will produce for Blumhouse Productions and Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will handle things for Hasbro. Universal’s director of development Sara Scott will oversee for the studio.
The sequel, from Universal Pictures, Platinum Dunes, Blumhouse Productions and Hasbro — maker of the famous spirit board — is set for an October 21, 2016, release. The $5 million original film grossed more than $100 million at the worldwide box office.
