Adam Scott, Evangeline Lilly to Star in Netflix Comedy ‘Little Evil’

Netflix, Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films and Mandalay Pictures are teaming up on the new horror comedy “Little Evil,” with Adam Scott and Evangeline Lilly attached to star.

The cast also includes Donald Faison, Chris D’Elia, Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Brad Williams, Marcus Terrell Smith, and Tyler Labine.

Eli Craig is writing and directing the film about Gary (Scott) who has just married Samantha (Lilly), the woman of his dreams, only to discover that her six-year-old son (Owen Atlas) may be the Antichrist.

Stuber will also produce along with Dylan Clark and Jason Michael Berman of Mandalay Pictures. The executive producers are Nicholas Nesbitt and Mark Moran.

The movie was originally set up at Universal Pictures where Stuber has a first-look deal. The studio let it go, but Craig delivered a script that Stuber couldn’t pass up. The project soon gained momentum with Netflix eventually coming on to finance and distribute.

Production begins next week in Cleveland. The pic will premiere on Netflix in 2017.

Scott recently wrapped production on HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies” and will be seen next in “My Blind Brother.” He is also a producer on “Other People,” starring Molly Shannon, which is currently in theaters and on VOD. He is repped by WME, Rise Managment, and Wendy Heller.

Lilly was last seen in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” as Hope van Dyne and is expected to return in “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” She is well known to audiences from the TV series “Lost” and as Tauriel in the blockbusters “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” Lilly is represented by UTA, Silver Lining Entertainment, and attorney Robert Offer.

Everett was most recently seen in “Trainwreck.” She is repped by WME.

Craig is represented by WME, Stephanie Davis at Wetdog Entertainment, and Don Steele of Hanson, Jacobson, Teller.

Bluegrass Films recently released the action comedy “Central Intelligence,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, which went on to gross more than $215 million worldwide. Their next film, “Patriots Day” with Mark Wahlberg, opens in December.
