Jacob Moran To Reteam With ‘The Black Phone’s Madeleine McGraw On Horror Pic ‘The Necklace’

Jacob Moran is set to reteam with Madeleine McGraw, his co-star on the hit Blumhouse/Universal horror pic The Black Phone, on a new horror pic titled The Necklace that enters production in Atlanta in late May.

Details as to Moran’s role are under wraps. Madeleine’s sister, Violet McGraw of M3GAN fame, will also star.

Directed by Juan Pablo Arias Munoz, from a script by John Ducey, The Necklace watches as the Davis family navigates through tough times in 1960. Laura Davis has separated from her husband Frank due to his unpredictable temper, fueled by alcohol. As Laura returns to work as a nurse, her daughters, 11-year-old Ellen (Violet McGraw) and 16-year-old Judy (Madeleine McGraw), grapple with the changes in their family dynamics. The plot thickens when Frank attempts to win Laura back with a beautiful antique necklace, which turns out to be a conduit for the tormented soul of an evil boy from long ago, putting Laura and her daughters in grave danger.
