Producer Courtney Solomon, discussing the reboot, praised the Riverdale actress, stating, “When setting out to remake The Strangers, we felt there was a bigger story to be told, which could be as powerful, chilling, and terrifying as the original and could really expand that world.

We’re fortunate to be joining forces with Madelaine Petsch, an amazing talent whose character is the driving force of the story.”
