Until Dawn’s original actors will not star in its film adaptation

PlayStation Productions and Screen Gems have announced the cast for the upcoming movie adaptation of the interactive horror game Until Dawn. According to Deadline, the ensemble will include Ella Rubin, who stars alongside Anne Hathaway in Amazon Prime’s The Idea of You, and Michael Cimino, who played Victor Salazar in Hulu’s Love, Victor. Expats’ Ji-young Yoo and Sitting in Bars with Cake’s Odessa A’zion have also signed on to play characters in the game revolving around eight young adults who have to survive the night at a remote mountain lodge while being hunted by a killer.
Supermassive Games got some pretty well-known actors to provide motion capture and voice acting for the game’s characters, including Rami Malek and Hayden Panettiere. They’re no longer the right age to play their original roles, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they’re not involved in the project. But since they’re not unknown motion capture actors, the filmmakers are dealing with a unique situation in that famous people’s faces are tied to the characters other people will now portray.
“At PlayStation Productions, we are always looking to find creative and authentic ways to adapt our beloved games that our fans will enjoy,” Asad Qizilbash, head of Sony’s production company, told Deadline. “Alongside Screen Gems, we’ve assembled a fantastic cast of new characters that builds upon our already stellar filmmaking team and their vision for the adaptation.”
The game itself is getting a remake for the PS5 and for PC. It was built in Unreal Engine 5 for the newer console, and it will add a third-person camera mode, new locations and new interactions to the original. Until Dawn’s remake is coming out sometime this fall.
