Deadline is exclusively reporting that Josie Totah will be starring alongside Barbie Ferreira and Dacre Montgomery in Legendary’s horror remake Faces of Death.
The 1978 original focused on a pathologist who explored the gruesome ways that humans die in order to better understand the many ‘faces of death’, cultivating footage from around the world. Whilst in reality most of the death scenes were staged, there were some real deaths shown in the film, leading to the film being banned in multiple countries, particularly being added to the ‘Video Nasty’ list in the UK. Due to this and curious minds, the film received a cult following when it received home video releases.
The report doesn’t state what role Josie Totah will be playing in the film. Her credits include Saved By The Bell and Other People.
Isa Mazzei and Daniel Goldhaber have been attached to write and direct the project, with Don Murphy and Susan Montford serving as producers on the project alongside Divide/Conquer’s Adam Hendricks and Greg Gilreath, with Rick Benattar serving as executive producer and Cory Kaplan as co-producer.
Faces of Death is scheduled to commence production this month.
