Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
Deadline reports child actress Zoe Colletti has joined the cast as Stella Michaels, “a young girl haunted by her mother’s appearance on Halloween Night.”
Meanwhile, Collider was able to get their hands on an official synopsis for the film, which will involve a “vengeful spirit” using characters and plot points from the book’s stories to capture a group of inquisitive children.
Stella Michaels (Colletti) is a young girl still haunted by her mother’s disappearance on Halloween night — an incident that she suspects her father knows more about than he lets on. Years later, Stella and her friends are involved in a Halloween prank gone wrong. But are they really at fault, or was it the work of a vengeful spirit — a female ghost who uses her scary stories to come after the teens when they begin to investigate the disappearance of several children?
Those who have read the script say that the film will feature the human scarecrow from “Harold” and the girl who has spiders crawl out of her face in “The Red Spot,” both of which appeared in Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones.

THR reports Hidden Figures screenwriter Allison Schroeder has been hired to co-write the script with director Jennifer Lee.
Speaking with IndieWire, Joaquin Phoenix stated he “could care less” about fan expectations when playing the Joker.
I could care less. I don’t really think that much about what people think. Who cares, who cares? My approach to every movie is the same. What I’m interested in is the filmmaker and the idea of the character.
