The cast list for Run Sweetheart Run, a new horror-thriller from Blumhouse, is quickly filling out according to Deadline.
Clark Gregg (The Avengers) and Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Exorcism of Emiliy Rose) will join Ella Balinska, Pilou Asbaek (Game of Thrones), Aml Ameen, Dayo Okeniyi, and Betsy Brandt will appear in the film.
Shana Feste will direct the project, which she also wrote. This marks the first Blumhouse film headed to the big screen with a woman at the helm, and it’s an exciting prospect, especially for this particular film.
Run Sweetheart Run tells the story of a woman (Balinska) desperately trying to get home after a blind date takes a violent turn. Alone on the streets of Los Angeles, she faces one dangerous obstacle after the other as her even more sinister date stalks her every move.
Jake Allyn, Ava Grey, and Manuel Uriza had previously been mentioned for the cast.
The film will go into production later this year. Stay tuned to iHorror for more details as they become available.
