John Gallagher Jr. has joined the cast of the horror film Larry from Amblin Entertainment, according to Deadline. The actor will star alongside recently cast Gillian Jacobs and Azhy Robertson.

The film, which is based on a short story by Jacob Chase, who will also write and direct, focuses on a troubled young boy (Robertson) and his family who become the target of a monster that materialized through electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Gallagher is no stranger to horror films having co-starred in 10 Cloverfield Lane alongside John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. He has also starred in high profile projects such as the HBO drama The Newsroom, and will next be seen in the films Underwater, The Best of Enemies, American Woman, and the TV series Modern Love.

Amblin Partners acquired the rights to turn writer-director Jacob Chase’s horror short, Larry, into a feature-length film back in February of this year. The Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman will produce. The horror movie will be written and directed by Chase.

Shooting for Larry is currently underway.
