What are your thoughts about a horror movie? If you love it, then I am coming up with a movie that you should add to your bucket list of watching it. Here in the article, I will be talking about “The Black Phone“. The Black Phone is a forthcoming American horror movie directed by Scott Derrickson and adapted by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill from Joe Hill’s short storey of the same name from 2004. Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Davies, James Ransone, and Mason Thames appear in the picture, which is produced by Derrickson, Cargill, and Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions.
What is the Movie Going to be About?
During Universal Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation on Wednesday, the first look at Scott Derrickson’s “The Black Phone” was unmistakably frightening.
Two adolescents stare at a “Missing” banner at the start of the video. A black vehicle comes up beside a teenager called Finney on his way home, and the guy, played by Ethan Hawke, asks for assistance with fallen items and lures him to the van with black balloons.
Finney is shown in a cellar with a broken black phone in the next scene. In a terrifying mask, the kidnapper approaches him and teases him. “Don’t hang up… you’re getting out of here,” someone adds later when the phone rings. As Finney struggles to flee the kidnapper’s clutches, glimpses of earlier stolen children occur.
Want To know the Production story?
When Scott Derrickson chose to produce The Black Phone with his regular collaborator C. Robert Cargill, he was working with Marvel Studios on the Doctor Strange sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Because of Derrickson’s Marvel obligations, Cargill began exploring for alternative directors to direct the picture. As a result, Derrickson requested that Cargill postpone The Black Phone until he could direct it; Cargill agreed and vowed to wait. Soon after, Derrickson had a creative disagreement with Marvel and departed to concentrate on The Black Phone instead.
In October 2020, it was announced that Derrickson will helm a Blumhouse Productions adaptation of Joe Hill’s short tale “The Black Phone,” based on a script co-written by Derrickson and Cargill, with Mason Thames and Madeleine McGraw slated to appear. Jeremy Davies and Ethan Hawke were cast in unknown roles in January 2021.
Under the working title Static, principal filming for The Black Phone began on February 9, 2021, at EUE/Screen Gems in Wilmington, North Carolina, and in the surrounding counties of New Hanover, Brunswick, and Columbus. James Ransone joined the cast the following month, and production wrapped on March 27.
