Deadline reports Madison Iseman, Aaron Dominguez, Antonia Desplat, Charlie Tahan and Jamie Campbell Bower are attached to star in a remake of the 1986 horror movie, Witchboard, from director Chuck Russell (The Blob, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors). The new film will reportedly see “recovering drug addict Emily (Iseman), her fiancé Christian (Dominguez) and a group of their friends open an organic café, refurbishing an old carriage house in New Orleans’ French Quarter. A darkness descends over Emily when she discovers an ancient pendulum board, once used to summon spirits, with Christian then seeking help for Emily from occult expert Alexander Babtiste. Babtiste, however, 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 then part of a dangerous game that puts Emily’s very soul at risk.”
