Smile Wide And Say… I’m Scared: Dylan Gelula Joins ‘Smile 2’

“Start Every Day Off With A Smile And Get It Over With” - W.C. Fields

W.C. Fields once said, “Start every day off with a smile and get it over with.” The famed vaudeville actor probably didn’t think the smile would end in death, as evidenced in Parker Finn’s horror film, Smile (2022). Nevertheless, Dylan Gelula getting cast in the upcoming sequel is a reason to heed Fields’ words and grin ear-to-ear.

A ‘Dream Scenario’ for Horror Fans

According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures’ Smile 2 has the Dream Scenario (2023) actress on board and already has the following actors attached: Naomi Scott, Lukas Gage, Kyle Gallner, and Rosemarie DeWitt.

A Smile is Worth a Million Words…or 217 Million Dollars Worldwide

The original hit film that spawned a franchise features a psychiatrist who experiences a traumatic event involving a patient. Shortly thereafter, she becomes paranoid about a mysterious supernatural force that has its grip on her.

Fangoria reports that Smile’s shockingly incredible box-office performance, totaling 217 million dollars globally, was potentially down to the disturbing concept and Paramount’s stellar marketing.

What Else Has Gelula Been In?

Besides the aforementioned A24 comedy Dream Scenario starring Nicolas Cage, Gelula has appeared in films including I Want You Back, Shithouse, Horse Girl, Her Smell, Support the Girls, and Flower. Furthermore, she’s made the rounds in TV series like the wonderful Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Shameless, and Casual. Additionally, she’ll be in the upcoming third season of the excellent HBO Max comedy Hacks.

This Project Is Going To Have Teeth

The plot and character roles have not been unveiled. However, it’s been confirmed that Finn wrote the screenplay once again and will helm the project as the director. In addition, Temple Hill acts as the producer.

While it’s impossible to predict the exact plot, it’s clear that this project is going to have teeth — that is, it promises to show more teeth and produce more ghastly murders than a dental office.

Smile 2 will be released in theaters on October 18th. For now, stream the original hit on Paramount+ and Amazon Prime.
