Elizabeth Lail to Star in “Countdown”

Elizabeth Lial has just landed her next big role. 

The You break out star has been tapped to lead the upcoming STX horror film, Countdown

The horror feature is directed by Justin Dec from his own script. Sean Anders, John Morris, John Rickard, and Zack Schiller are producing the feature. 

According to TheWrap, the film follows a young nurse who downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die. But then when it tells her that she only has three three days to live, she has to find a way to save her life before time runs out.

“Elizabeth Lail is an exciting young actress whose breakout performance in the wildly popular psychological thriller You was a breath of fresh air,” STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said. “Countdown is a wholly original, scary, and fun script, and we’re thrilled to have found the perfect lead to bring this story to life for audiences around the world.”

Lial’s credits include roles on The Blacklist and Once Upon a Time.
