‘Barbershop’s’ Sean Patrick Thomas Joins James Wan’s Horror Film ‘The Children’

“Barbershop” actor Sean Patrick Thomas will co-star with Linda Cardellini in New Line’s upcoming horror film “The Children.”

Michael Chaves is directing from a script by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. James Wan will produce through his Atomic Monster production banner, along with Gary Dauberman and Emile Gladstone. Michael Clear is exec producing.

The story follows a social worker who, while investigating the mysterious disappearance of two children, discovers her own family might also be in jeopardy.

New Line has been on a horror win streak with its most recent film, the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s “It,” breaking numerous box office records worldwide. The movie is the highest grossing horror film of all time with more than $600 million at the worldwide box office and major international markets yet to open. “Annabelle: Creation,” an August release that is a part of Wan’s “Conjuring” universe, has earned $298 million-plus worldwide.

Best known for his roles in “Save the Last Dance,” “The Fountain,” and the “Barbershop” franchise, the veteran actor has most recently had recurring roles on the series “Reaper,” “Lie to Me,” and “Ringer,” as well as reprising his role as “Jimmy” in “Barbershop: The Next Cut.” He is repped by Principato-Young Entertainment and Innovative Artists.
