Summer vacation hasn’t quite started for Nina Dobrev. After wrapping “The Vampire Diaries” season 5, she landed another project joining “The Final Girls,” a horror comedy film from Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions being directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.
The production’s cast also includes Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”), Adam DeVine (“Pitch Perfect,” Workaholic’s”), Alexander Ludwig (“Hunger Games”) and Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie centers on a girl who, along with her friends, is mysteriously transported into the world of an iconic ’80s horror flick, which starred her recently deceased mother, a famous scream queen. The group must try to survive the movie and defeat its crazed killer.”
Dobrev is slated to play the alpha ex-best friend. It sounds like a strong role, and I’m really excited to see her rock it out. In case you’re a curious cat like me, here’s a picture she posted from her first day on set:
Congratulations Dobrev on the new project!
