Ulrich's role is currently unknown from the premise alone; however, the actor clearly will have some significance with this role opposite Monogan. Hercules Film Fund is said to be fully financing the upcoming project, with Rhea films set to producing the film. Additional producers include Paris Kassidokostas Latsis and Terry Dougas, with Jean-Luc De Fanti, Steve Sims, and Ryan Bartecki serving as executive producers.

Ulrich has most recently been seen on Riverdale as a fan-favorite character and recurring character in season one before officially joining season two as a main cast member. Ulrich made quite a reputation for himself in the '90s with roles like Billy Loomis Scream and Chris Hooker in The Craft becoming cult classics, a well as his leading role in another cult-classic series, Jericho. Monaghan was introduced in the early '00s, with smaller roles like Mr. and Mrs. Smith before taking on main roles in True Detective and the Netflix original, Messiah — who will also star in the upcoming Blumhouse continuation/spiritual sequel to The Craft.
