Announced last month, Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead, Nightmare Cinema, Pooka Lives!) is on board to direct a horror movie for Netflix that’s titled The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy, and Deadline reports today that Rachel Nichols has signed on.
Nichols, who appeared in The Amityville Horror (2005), The Woods and P2, will star alongside Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption, 24), Austin Stowell (Catch-22, Bridge of Spies), Briana Middleton (The Tender Bar), David Walton (New Girl, Bad Moms), Reese Alexander (The Interview, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Peyton List (Bunk’d, Hubie Halloween).
The film is written by Chris LaMont and Joe Russo.
“The story follows billionaire Charles Abernathy who, on the eve of his 75th birthday, invites his four estranged children back home out of fear that tonight someone – or something – is coming to kill him.”
“To ensure his family will help protect him from whatever’s coming, Abernathy puts each of their inheritances on the line – they’ll get nothing if he’s found dead by dawn.”
