EXCLUSIVEAntonia Thomas (The Good Doctor), Will Davis, Adelle Leonce (A Discovery of Witches), William Hope (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Steven Cree (Terminator: Dark Fate) and Sharon D Clarke (Broadway’s Caroline, or Change) will join The Hunger Games franchise’s Sam Claflin in the Lionsgate supernatural thriller, Bagman.

The film centers on Patrick McKee (Claflin), a father who desperately struggles against his deepest inner fear when a sinister threat from his childhood returns to haunt him. Only this time, the fight isn’t for himself; it’s for his family.
