Other characters: Jeff “the Dude” Bridges is a convict pretending to be a priest so he can find stolen loot he stashed in the hotel years before.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor) is a charismatic cult leader looking to recapture a follower who got away.
Tony winner Cynthia Erivo is a down-on-her-luck singer who crosses paths with the others.
Cailee Spaeney is a young Southern girl hiding out in the hotel.
Bad Times at the El Royale is Drew Goddard’s feature film followup to his horror hit The Cabin in the Woods. Next up for Goddard is writing and directing the Deadpool spinoff X-Force with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Josh Brolin as Cable.

The 20th Century Fox production filmed a bank heist gone wrong during a 1950s Christmas with Jeff Bridges as one of the robbers in Agassiz on January 30th and 31st.
And then moved to downtown Vancouver to the Beatty Street Drill Hall reportedly as a jail with cells and an FBI office on February 2nd. Again Jeff Bridges was spotted at set.
Since then, production has been spotted mainly on the town set at Upper Coquitlam River Park.
Bad Times at the El Royale is expected in theatres on October 5th.
