Chris Lowell has joined the cast of My Best Friend’s Exorcism, an adaptation of the cult-hit novel by Grady Hendrix being made by Endeavor Content and Amazon Studios.
Damon Thomas, known for his work on Killing Eve and Penny Dreadful, is directing the horror movie, currently in production in Atlanta armed with a script by Jenna Lamia.
Eighth Grade star Elsie Fisher, Amiah Miller, Cathy Ang, and Rachel Ogechi Kanu are leading the Exorcism, which centers on Abby and Gretchen, two best friends and sophomores in high school. Their friendship is tested when Abby begins to suspect that her friend may be possessed by a demonic force.
Lowell is playing a muscly meathead who along with his brother performs a “Faith and Fitness” at the teens’ parochial school. He sees that Gretchen is possessed and in need of an exorcism.
Producing the movie are The Gotham Group, Quirk Productions and Christopher Landon, the writer-director of hit horror movies such as Freaky and Happy Death Day.
Lowell is coming off a turn in Promising Young Woman, the biting Oscar-nominated drama from Emerald Fennell that starred Carey Mulligan, and also had a key role in Netflix’s acclaimed and much-missed comedic drama GLOW.
He is repped by ICM and Anonymous Content.
