Deadline exclusively reports that Cameron Monaghan is set to star in South African director Jahmil Qubeka’s supernatural thriller The White Devil.
The White Devil will be a story revolving around a young American High School senior, who hopes to put his past behind him when he is enrolled by his father into a prestigious British boys’ academy. Soon he learns that the school has a past as well – one haunted by a vengeful former student who quickly forms an unhealthy attachment to him.
Roberi Media and Spier Films will be financing and producing the film, which is set to commence shooting next spring in Cape Town, South Africa. Jahmil Qubeka will be directing from a script he adapted with Julian Paul Stein from Justin Evans’ 2011 novel. Robert L. Stein and Michael Auret will serve as Producers with Morris Ruskin serving as Executive Producer.
