Ryan Phillippe has made a return to horror after the film ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ launched his acting career into the stars. I’ve always thought he was an amazing actor who was in search of that giant hit. With stellar performances in films like ‘Crash‘, ‘Breach‘, ‘Flags of Our Fathers‘ and ‘Way Of The Gun‘ w/ Benicio Del Toro. He always delivered the goods. Now after more then 20 years in the business he’s making his return to horror with a role in the new film ‘Wish Upon’.
In the latest horror thriller from the director of ANNABELLE, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends MEREDITH (Sydney Park) and JUNE (Shannon Purser). So when her dad (Ryan Phillippe) gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner’s wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Clare makes her first wish and, to her surprise, it comes true. Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in gruesome and twisted ways. Now, with blood on her hands, Clare has to get rid of the box, before it costs her and everyone she loves the ultimate price.
Be careful what you wish for.
Broad Green Pictures’ WISH UPON is directed by John R. Leonetti (ANNABELLE) and produced by Sherryl Clark (CLOVERFIELD).
