Ivan Schwarz, President of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission said, "The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is excited that another film has decided to film here and help us continue with our mission to build a year round industry in Cleveland and Northeast, Ohio.

The film stars Doug Jones ("Hellboy," "Pan's Labyrinth"), Douglas Smith ("Vinyl," "Terminator: Genisys," "Ouija"), Cressida Bonas ("Dr. Thorne," "Tulip Fever") and Lucien Laviscount ("Scream Queens," "Coco").
