Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke (Sinister, childhood, training day), in the most disturbing role of his career, stars in a suspenseful new thriller based on the short story of Joe Hill (“Locke & Key,” horns) and Blumhouse and director Scott Derrickson who brought you Claim and Doctor Odd.From producer Jason Blum (The invisible Man, get out, Divide), written by Scott Derrickson and C.Robert Cargill (Sinister, Dr. Strange) under the direction of Derrickson, The black phone stars Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Davis (Save Private Ryan, the house that Jack built, lost), James Ranson (It Chapter Two, Generation Kill), Mason Thames (For all mankind, Walker) and Madeleine McGraw (Secrets of Sulpher Springs, a Christmas wish). Finney (Thames), a shy but smart 13-year-old boy, is kidnapped by a sadistic killer (Hawke) and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is useless. When a disconnected phone on the wall starts ringing, Finney discovers he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they’re determined to make sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney. The film is produced by Derrickson & Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse.
Meagan wrote in her review of The black phone for Bloody Disgusting, “Derrickson and Cargill revive the same traits and structure of Claim to turn Joe Hill’s short into a full-length nightmare full of ghostly children, violence and a trio of unforgettable performances.
