Golden Globe nominated actress Michelle Monaghan is signing up for Blumhouse-Sony-Red Wagon’s reboot of the 1996 cult classic ‘The Craft.’
The ‘True Detective’ actress is joining David Duchovny, Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine and Julian Grey as a part of the growing cast of ‘The Craft’. Monaghan’s role, however, remains a mystery. The original film from which the remake is adapted from followed a newcomer at a Catholic prep high school who falls in with a trio of outcast teen girls who practice witchcraft for personal gain.
She will be appearing in Netflix’s geo-political thriller series ‘Messiah’ in 2020. The film features Monaghan as a CIA agent Eve Gellar who investigates a man attracting international attention and followers through acts of public disruption, she embarks on a global, high-stakes mission to uncover whether he is a divine entity or a deceptive con artist.
Last year, she reprised her role as Julia Meade in Paramount’s sixth installment of Tom Cruise’s franchise ‘Mission Impossible.’ Raking over $791 million, ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’ was the highest-grossing film in the franchise. Monaghan’s television filmography includes Hulu’s drama series ‘The Path’ and the first season of HBO’s ‘True Detective’ in which she co-starred with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Monaghan is repped by ICM, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Robert Offer.
Zoe Lister-Jones is writing, directing, and executive producing ‘The Craft.’ Jason Blum will be producing ‘The Craft’ under his Blumhouse label. Oscar-winning producer Wick produced the original film and will be returning to produce the reboot alongside Lucy Fisher for Red Wagon Entertainment. Director and co-writer of the original film, Andrew Fleming will be executive producing the supernatural film with Red Wagon Entertainment’s Lucas Wiesendanger; Natalia Anderson; Daniel Bekerman; and Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno and Bea Sequeira of Blumhouse. Blumhouse and Columbia are co-financing the film.
