Kiernan Shipka and Olivia Holt have been cast in the upcoming horror-comedy “Totally Killer” from Blumhouse…
Kiernan Shipka — best known for her role on “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” — and Olivia Holt — who recently starred in the Freeform series “Cruel Summer” — will lead the cast of a new time-traveling horror comedy from Blumhouse titled “Totally Killer.”
The film centers around Jamie (Shipka) whose mom, Pam (played by Julie Bowen) is terrorized by the resurgence of the Sweet Sixteen Killer — a masked maniac that slaughtered a group of teenage girls in the 1980’s. With the help of her friend Amelia (Kelcey Mawema), Jamie travels back in time to 1987 and teams up with the teen version of her mom (Holt) to try and stop the killer.
Nahnatchka Khan (Always Be My Maybe) is directing the film with Jen D’Angelo writing the screenplay based on an original script by David Matalon and Sasha Perl-Raver.
The film will also feature Randall Park as well as Lochlyn Munro (Adult Blake), Charlie Gillespie (Teen Blake), Stephi Chin-Salvo (Marisa Song), Anna Diaz (Heather Hernandez), Jeremy Monn-Djasgnar (Teen Randy Finkle), Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson (Teen Lauren), Ella Choi (Teen Kara Molnar), Kelcey Mawema (Amelia), Liana Liberato (Tiffany Clark), Nathaniel Appiah (Teen Doug Summers), and Jonathan Potts (Adult Chris Dubusage).
“The idea of a horror-comedy time-travel movie is, I’m gonna be honest, something I never thought of in my life,” Khan said in a statement. “So when I was approached by the amazing creatives at Blumhouse and Amazon about Totally Killer, it was just so unique and exciting I had to be involved. And then add this incredible cast on top of that? Everybody get readyyyyyyy.”
The film is being produced by Blumhouse Productions along with Amazon Prime Video as part of an overall deal between the studio and the streaming giant. Blumhouse has already produced numerous films for Prime Video over the past couple of years and this will be another addition to the growing lineup.
Production is already underway for the film in Vancouver but there’s no release date just yet.
