Lucy Hale is set to star in Blumhouse’s newest horror project “Truth or Dare,” TheWrap has learned.

Jeff Wadlow will write and direct the film, which follows a college student in Mexico who is conned to play a supernatural version of Truth or Dare. However, the game follows her back home.

Wadlow wrote the screenplay along with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs. The story is by Michael Reisz, Wadlow, Roach and Jacobs. Blumhouse’s Jason Blum is producing, while Wadlow, Roach and Couper Samuelson are serving as executive producers.

Blumhouse has had a solid year so far in terms of box office, and is establishing itself as the go-to horror production house. It opened the James McAvoy psychological horror film “Split,” which earned more than $40 million domestically in January and has earned $249 million worldwide.

Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” opened in February and has made an estimated $118 million, with critics raving about the film starring Allison Williams and Daniel Kaluuya.

Wadlow is represented by UTA and Principato-Young Entertainment. Hale is represented by ICM Partners and Reel Talent Management.
