Elizabeth Lail to Star in STXfilms Horror Film Countdown

-

STXfilms today announced that You star Elizabeth Lail will play the lead role in the studio’s upcoming horror film, Countdown. In Countdown, when a young nurse downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, it tells her she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and a mysterious figure haunting her, she must find a way to save her life before time runs out.

“Elizabeth Lail is an exciting young actress whose breakout performance in the wildly popular psychological thriller You was a breath of fresh air,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. “Countdown is a wholly original, scary and fun script and we’re thrilled to have found the perfect lead to bring this story to life for audiences around the world.”

Countdown was written by Justin Dec, who will also serve as the film’s director. Sean Anders, John Morris, (Daddy’s Home 1 & 2, Instant Family), John Rickard (Rampage, Final Destination 5, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Zack Schiller (Escape Plan franchise) are producing, with STXfilms’ Drew Simon and Catherine Hagedorn overseeing the production on behalf of the studio. STXinternational is handling international distribution and distributing directly in the U.K. and Ireland.

In addition to You, Lail guest-starred in The Blacklist and played Princess Anna on Once Upon a Time. She is represented by ICM Partners and Authentic.
