‘Witchboard’ Remake – Jamie Campbell Bower Joins the Cast of Chuck Russell’s Update

A remake of Witchboard from Dream Warriors and The Blob director Chuck Russell has come up several times over the years, but now it sounds like it’s finally happening.

Deadline reports today that Jamie Campbell Bower (“Stranger Things”) has joined the cast of Russell’s Witchboard, a remake of the same-named 1986 horror film.

“There is a tradition in cinema of great English actors that have the charisma we associate with stardom as well as the acting chops to truly be a chameleon, playing a variety of character types,” Russell said. “Jamie Campbell Bower is that kind of actor and his time is now.”

Deadline also notes, “The film shoots in May in Montreal and New Orleans.”

Russell will direct, and he also co-wrote the script with Greg McKay.

In writer/director Kevin S. Tenney’s original movie, “Friends playing with an Ouija board at a late-night party unleash a demonic spirit who begins hunting them.”

Here’s the plot synopsis for the remake: “Emily, her fiancé Christian and a group of their friends open an organic café, refurbishing an old carriage house in New Orleans’ French Quarter. But a darkness descends over Emily when she discovers an ancient pendulum board, once used to summon spirits.

“Christian seeks help for Emily from occult expert Alexander Babtiste, but Babtiste has secrets of his own, knowing the fateful bloodlines that binds them all to the Witchboard. A modern coven of White Witches, a masked ball at Babtiste’s mansion, and the legacy of Naga Soth, the Queen of Witches, are all part of a dangerous game that puts Emily’s very soul at risk.”
