Lorna Raver and David Paymer are joining Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me to Hell” for Ghost House Pictures and Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows Stephanie (Alison Lohman), the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse. Jessica Lucas (“Cloverfield”) was cast earlier this week to play her roommate and best friend.
Raver plays Mrs. Ganush, a proud Eastern European woman with an old-world belief system who, when defied and humiliated, vengefully casts the curse.
Paymer will play Mr. Jacks, Stephanie’s practical bank-manager boss. Raimi wrote the screenplay with his brother, Ivan.
Principal photography begins Monday in Los Angeles.
