A star of CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA is playing the horror heroine in a new series.

Quibi has announced its forthcoming adaptation of Junji Ito’s popular manga, produced by Sony Pictures Television and UCP. Adeline Rudolph (pictured), who plays CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA’s Agatha, will star as “a beautiful high school girl who goes missing and pieces of her body are discovered scattered around a small town. But what starts out as a murder mystery turns into something even more horrific.” Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, HORNS, CRAWL) will direct from a script by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (ORPHAN, THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, THE WALKING DEAD); the two are also executive-producing.
