Scream Queen Emma Roberts has joined the cast of Dan Mazer’s supernatural comedy Anya’s Ghost, based on the award-winning graphic novel of the same name by Russian writer-illustrator Vera Brogosgal.
The story centers on Anya, “an unpopular 16-year-old who gets stranded in an underground cave where she rescues Emily (Roberts), the apparent ghost of a teenage girl who died a century earlier. Initially, Anya thinks her new “friend” may be the best thing that ever happened to her. But the relationship has unforeseen consequences for Anya, her friends and her family.”
Deadline is reporting that screenplay was penned by Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls). Jeremy Bolt of Bolt Pictures and Benedict Carver of Bullitt Entertainment are producing along with EOne who also financed the film.
