Shudder has a new clip from The Power, a ghost story set during the 1974 London blackout.
Deadline reports Brittany Adebumola, Jaye Ladymore, and Amarr Wooten have joined the cast of 4400. Adebumola will play Shanice, “a driven lawyer, wife and new mother from the year 2005 who is suddenly transported to 2021 only to find that her daughter is now a teenager” opposite Ladymore as Claudette,” a preacher’s wife from the 1950s who was active in the early Civil Rights Movement.” Wooten has been cast as Hayden, “who arrives in 2021 from the 1930s where he was kept in an institution. Perhaps due to an unpleasant past, he doesn’t appear to speak but is compassionate and seems to have insight and knowledge into things he couldn’t possibly know.”
