If you’re hot on your YouTube stars (I’m not!) then you might be excited to learn that Sailor J – whose real name is Jahkara Smith – has been cast in Joe Hill’s upcoming NOS4A2. Smith’s videos focus on make-up tutorials, but are described as doubling as social commentary.
The story from the writer of Horns, Heart Shaped Box and the comic book series Locke and Key spans several decades and follows Victoria McQueen who has a great ability to find things, but loses her son. On her search for the truth she is lead to Charles Manx; a child abductor who has been alive for over a century. Victoria soon finds herself tangled in a dark world below America as she tries to find her missing child.
Smith will play the role of a purple-haired librarian who has a scrabble bag portal to the universe. Intriguing. Hopefully we’ll be begin to hear more about this film as the end of 2018 starts to approach (terrifying, isn’t it?) because it sounds like it’s going to be fascinating.
AMC are behind NOS4A2, which is set to premiere in 2019.
