‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Shay Mitchell Joins ‘Cadaver’ Horror Movie

Shay Mitchell, who’s starred for seven seasons on “Pretty Little Liars,” is moving to the horror-thriller realm as the lead in Screen Gems’ “Cadaver.”

Diederik Van Rooijen is directing from a script written by Brian Sieve. Sean Robins and Todd Garner will produce the project through their Broken Road Productions banner.

Mitchell will play a disgraced ex-cop and recovering addict who must take a graveyard shift at the morgue in the hospital where she got sober. She begins to witness terrorizing and violent murders shortly after a mysterious and brutally massacred body is delivered to the morgue.

The seventh season of Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” is set to begin airing on June 21. Mitchell, a native of Canada, stars as Emily Fields on the series.

Mitchell also starred in the ensemble cast of Lionsgate’s romantic comedy “Mother’s Day.”

Screen Gems’ Michael Bitar brought “Cadaver” in to Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper and exec VP Scott Strauss, who will both oversee the project for the company.

Mitchell is represented by APA, David Dean Management and Grubman Shire & Meiselas.
