Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions have revealed four key cast members for the upcoming film adaptation of the popular horror game Until Dawn. According to Deadline, the actors cast are Michael Cimino, Odessa A'zion, Ella Rubin, and Ji-young Yoo.

The film version will be directed by Lights Out director David F. Sandberg. Annabelle Comes Home writer Gary Dauberman wrote the latest version of the script, with Blair Butler (Hell Fest) working on a previous draft.

Michael Cimino is best known for starring in Hulu's Love, Simon spinoff series Love, Victor, in addition to appearing in Never Have I Ever and Annabelle Comes Home. A'zion is probably best known for starring in the Netflix drama Grand Army, though she's no stranger to the horror genre, having starred in Hellraiser (2022). She also has the indie horror movie Hell House in development.

As for Rubin, you can catch her starring opposite Anne Hathaway in Prime Video's breakout movie The Idea of You. She's also set for the Netflix horror film Fear Street: Prom Queen. Yoo is coming off of a great run on Expats, which featured Nicole Kidman, and will appear in Freaky Tales along with Pedro Pascal and Jay Ellis.

Until Dawn follows a group of eight friends who must survive a harrowing night on the secluded Blackwood Mountain. Sony is keeping the logline under wraps, but Deadline says the movie is R-rated and being described as a "terrifying love letter to the horror genre."

Because Sony seems reluctant to reveal plot details or even say who the cast is playing, it's possible that the movie version of Until Dawn will follow a different storyline from the game. Cimino, Rubin, Yoo, and A'zion might be playing original characters instead of taking over for the game's actors, which included stars like Hayden Panettiere, Rami Malek, and Brett Dalton.

If they do keep the characters from the game, I could see A'zion as Sam, Cimino as Matt, Yoo as Emily, and Rubin as maybe Jessica or Ashley.

The video game Until Dawn will receive a remaster for PS5 later this year.
