Malignant: James Wan’s secret horror pic gets a title as filming begins

Director James Wan took to Instagram to share the first behind-the-scenes photo from the set of his upcoming secret horror project, revealing the official title to be Malignant, as filming officially begins for New Line Cinema’s latest collaboration with Wan. Meanwhile, Deadline brings word that Michole Briana White (Encino Man) and Jacqueline McKenzie (Pine Gap) have signed on to join the cast.

White and McKenzie will be joining previously announced cast members Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle), Jake Abel (Supernatural), George Young (Containment),  and Maddie Hasson (Mr. Mercedes).

The film, whose plot is being kept under wraps, but is based on a story co-written by Wan and his fiance Ingrid Bisu, who starred in The Nun and recently got engaged to the 42-year-old Australian director. Wan will also produce the film through his Atomic Monster banner alongside Michael Clear. The film is being financed through Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will distribute in China as New Line handles the remaining distribution. Malignant seemingly has no relation to the James Wan penned graphic novel Malignant Man, previously set up as a feature film at Fox, though given the titles it’s not a stretch to imagine a connection.

DC Comics fan don’t have to fret, however, as Wan’s current plan is to direct the project this fall in Los Angeles and then move into pre-production on the sequel to last year’s critical and commercial smash Aquaman.
