Blumhouse and Universal’s The Black Phone is shaping up to be a Sinister reunion! Not only do you have director Scott Derickson at the helm, but writer Robert Cargill is once again penning the script and Ethan Hawke recently joined the cast.

Ransone is also known for playing the grown-up version of Eddie Kaspbrak in It Chapter Two. Other confirmed cast members for The Black Phone include Jeremy Davies (Hannibal), Mason Thames (For All Mankind), and Madeleine McGraw (Outcast).
An adaptation of the Joe Hill short story of the same name, The Black Phone centres around a kidnapped kid, a creepy, soundproofed basement, and an ancient, disconnected phone. Then, when night falls, the phone rings…
