Deadline is reporting that Peyton List has signed up for the lead role in the upcoming sci-fi horror film The Friendship Game.
The Friendship Game follows a group of teenagers in a small town as they come across a strange object that tests their loyalties to each other with increasingly destructive consequences the deeper into the game they go.
The script is written by Damien Ober, with Scooter Corkle attached to direct, with the director releasing a statement saying:
Adding Peyton’s affectionate touch to the character in the cerebral madness of The Friendship Game has everyone excited, just wait and see where she takes you. Paired with Damien Ober’s addition to the cosmic horror pantheon, believe me, you can’t know what you’re in for.
The film is being produced by Daniel Bekerman and Zak Kilberg, with Tannaz Anisi and Gregory R. Schenz of 13 Films serving as executive producers, with 13 Films handling sales at the upcoming Cannes virtual market.
The Friendship Game is scheduled to commence production in Vancouver, Canada, this coming September.
