‘Hocus Pocus’ star joins adaptation of Max Booth III’s ‘We Need to Do Something’

“Hocus Pocus” actress Vinessa Shaw, Sierra McCormick and Pat Healy are starring in Sean King O’Grady horror film “We Need to Do Something”.

Also starring newcomer Lisette Alexis and John James Cronin, and produced by Atlas Industries, Hantz Motion Pictures and Spin a Black Yarn, the film is based on Max Booth III’s novella of the same name – who also adapted for the screen.

”We Need to Do Something” sees Melissa (Sierra McCormick) and her family find shelter from a storm, only to become trapped. With no sign of rescue, hours turn to days and Melissa comes to realize that she and her girlfriend Amy, played by Lisette Alexis, might have something to do with the horrors that threaten to tear her family and the world apart.

Filming recently wrapped in Detroit.

“Max’s script captures the hopelessness of 2020 in a way that is both cathartic and – dare I say – really fun,” director O’Grady said in a statement, via THR.
