A number of high-profile studio film sequels have been casting up.
Aldis Hodge, who played MC Ren in the recent hit “Straight Outta Compton,” is in talks to join Tom Cruise in the upcoming “Jack Reacher” sequel at Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.
Details on Hodge’s role are under wraps. Danika Yarosh and Cobie Smulders are also in talks for the Ed Zwick-directed film which is slated to begin shooting in November.
Next up, Elizabeth Reaser (“Mad Men”) will join Annalise Basso in the upcoming sequel to last year’s micro budget horror success “Ouija”.
The next installment will debut in cinemas on October 21st 2016 and will again involve the iconic board game from Hasbro.
Finally, Legendary UK character actor Simon McBurney (“Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation,” “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”) has joined the cast of James Wan’s “The Conjuring” sequel.
Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson will reprise their roles of paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren who investigate a haunting related to the daughter of a character played by Francis O’Connor. Filming begins later this month in Los Angeles.
