Kiersey Clemons to Star in Horror Film ‘Sweetheart’ From Blumhouse and ‘Sleight’ Team
Blumhouse and the team behind “Sleight” are teaming up again for a new horror thriller and snagged one of Hollywood’s rising talents to lead. Blumhouse Productions has picked “Dope’s” Kiersey Clemons to star in ‘Sweetheart,’ the latest pic from “Sleight” director JD Dillard.
Dillard co-wrote the script with his “Sleight” writing partner Alex Theurer as well Alex Hyner. Dillard, Theurer, and Hyner will all produce along with Jason Blum and Bill Karesh.
With ‘The Flash’ pushing production while it looks for a director, Clemons and her team had been looking for a good film to fit in before then and landed on this project. Clemons has a busy 2017, including the “Flatliners” remake at Sony and Marc Webb’s “The Only Living Boy in New York.” She is repped by UTA, MJMG, and Mach 1 Management.
No release date has been given, but they are looking to start shooting in April.
