Blair Underwood and Alicia Witt have joined the cast of the horror-thriller ‘Longlegs’ alongside Nicolas Cage and Maika Monroe. The film, directed by Osgood Perkins from his own script, follows FBI Agent Lee Harker (Monroe) as she investigates an elusive serial killer (Cage) and uncovers evidence of the occult. Underwood will play a yet-to-be-announced role.
‘Longlegs’ is produced and fully financed by C2 Motion Picture Group, with Cage and his production company Saturn Films among the producers. Black Bear International will release the film in the UK, while international deals have been closed with Metropolitan for France, DCM for Germany, Rialto for Australia, and more. Domestic rights are repped by UTA Independent Film Group and CAA Media Finance.
Witt, known for her work in ‘I Care a Lot’ and ‘Stargirl,’ and Underwood, a Golden Globe and Tony Award nominee, are both represented by top agencies. Underwood recently joined Ava DuVernay’s Netflix feature ‘Caste’ and has upcoming projects with Starz and Sky. He also directed, produced and starred in the indie thriller ‘Viral.’
