“Magic Mike” and “End of Watch” star Cody Horn will play a ghost hunter in her next film, according to THR. Alan Horn’s daughter has signed on to join Maria Bello and Frank Grillo in “The Untitled James Wan Thriller” to be directed by Will Cannon.
Wan wrote the thriller about a psychologist (Bello) and a police officer (Grillo) who investigate the deaths of five people who were killed attempting to summon a ghost. Sounds like Horn’s ghost hunter character may be meeting a grim fate judging by that description (speculation, not spoiler). Filming begins next week in Baton Rouge.
Horn began acting in 2010 and became most known for a recurring role on season 8 of NBC series “The Office.” Last year she began popping up on the big screen, most notably as Alex Pettyfer’s older sister and Channing Tatum’s love interest in Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper sleeper hit “Magic Mike.” She also played a cop in David Ayer’s Jake Gyllenhaal-Michael Pena drama “End of Watch.”

Next Gen actress Cody Horn, daughter to legendary Warner Bros boss Alan Horn, has landed the female lead in Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper buddy flick “Magic Mike”, according to The Playlist. Horn follows Riley Keough as the second female to join the testosterone fueled cast, which includes Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello.
Tatum plays the titular Magic Mike, who takes the young and inexperienced Pettyfer under his wing. McConaughey plays a former stripper turned club owner while Bomer and Manganiello are strippers. Keough will be Pettyfer’s love interest while Horn, reportedly beating out bigger name actresses, will play Pettyfer’s older sister Paige who gets involved romantically with Tatum. There should be another female character to be cast, another love interest for Tatum’s character named Amber, previously reported to have been offered to Jessica Biel, who passed.
Horn began acting only one year ago, and has already been racking up an increasing number of roles, the most visible thus far for being a new addition to hit NBC series “The Office.” She’ll next be seen alongside Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan in teenage assassin thriller “Violet and Daisy” and also has a role in David Ayers’ currently-filming police drama “End of Watch” with Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena.

John Krasinski and Olivia Thirlby have joined the cast of “Nobody Walks”, reports Variety. Rosemarie DeWitt also stars in the indie drama directed by Ry Russo-Young from a script by breakout indie sensation Lena Dunham, who recently won the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay for “Tiny Furniture”.
The film takes place over the course of one week as a Los Angeles family takes a charismatic artist into their home and end up having their lives turned upside down. It is slated to begin filming at the end of May in Los Angeles.
Krasinski narrowly missed out on being “Captain America”, and will next be seen in rom-com “Something Borrowed”. He recently wrapped the seventh season of “The Office” and feature “Everybody Loves Whales” opposite Drew Barrymore. Thirlby is a staple on the indie scene, recently wrapping an adaptation of “Judge Dredd” and currently filming “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” opposite Paul Dano. She’ll next be seen on the big screen in alien invasion flick “The Darkest Hour” opposite Emile Hirsch.
