According to The Hollywood Reporter, Selma Blair has signed on for the remake of John Carpenter's classic horror-thriller The Fog for Revolution Studios.

Also joining the cast are DeRay Davis and Rade Serbedzija. Rupert Wainwright is directing the film, and Debra Hill, David Foster and Carpenter are the producers.

Cooper Layne is writing from the screenplay by Hill and Carpenter for the original 1980 film.

The Fog is set in a Northern California town near where a ship sank about 100 years earlier under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog. The ghosts of the deceased mariners return from their watery graves to seek revenge. Tom Welling and Maggie Grace also star.

Blair is stepping into the role originally portrayed by Adrienne Barbeau, a DJ and owner of a lighthouse. Davis plays Welling's best friend, and Serbedzija is a priest. Blair's upcoming films include Pretty Persuasion and The Alibi.

She will shoot Hellboy II after she completes The Fog.
