Newly formed production and distribution company Welcome Villain Films is working on an “expanded reimagining” of director Anthony DiBlasi’s 2014 horror film Last Shift, and the project has announced its lead!
Jessica Sula (Split, Scream: The TV Series) will star in the film as “a rookie police officer who willingly takes the last shift at a newly decommissioned police station. She hopes to uncover the mysterious connection between her father’s death and a vicious cult, but throughout the night she’s thwarted by terrifying supernatural events that connect to her family’s twisted past.”
DiBlasi is back in the director’s chair for the as-yet-untitled reboot, which he also co-wrote with Scott Poiley. The cast includes Candice Coke (Kevin Can F**K Himself), Chaney Morrow (Haunt), Clarke Wolfe (Satanic Panic), Valerie Loo (American Horror Stories), Monroe Cline (Don’t Worry Darling), Sam Brooks (Fear Street Part Two: 1978), Kevin Wayne (The Outsider), Britt George (True Blood), Morgan Lennon, Eric Olson, Danielle Coyne, and Natalie Victoria.
The film is currently in post-production, with a 2023 release planned.
