Soaps.com has learned that younger General Hospital actor Ashton Arbab (Port Charles’ Dev Cerci) has taped the part of Tommy in the upcoming Netflix film A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting. He posted a photo of himself in character on Instagram along with the caption, “That’s a picture wrap on “Tommy” !!!! Thank you so much @netflix for giving me the opportunity to be apart of this amazing film with such a fantastic cast and crew. What a blessing❤️ Can’t wait for everyone to see our film “A Baby-Sitters Guide To Monster Hunting” coming soon to a Netflix Account near you hahahahah!!!!”
The film A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting is based on the Joe Ballarini novel of the same name, the first in a series of books. The book follows middle schooler Kelly Ferguson, whose Halloween plans are unfortunately switched from attending a party to babysitting, and she thinks the scariest part of her night will be the death of her social life. But when her baby Jacob gets kidnapped by the Boogeyman’s minions, Kelly learns there’s a whole lot more to childcare, such as chasing shadow monsters and mastering monster-fighting moves. With the help of an ancient handbook and a secret society of butt-kicking babysitters, Kelly sets out to destroy the Boogeyman before he brings Jacob’s nightmares to life. However, the monsters’ trail leads to her school’s big Halloween bash, where Kelly has to prove she can save the world without totally embarrassing herself in front of her friends.
The movie adaptation was written by Ballarini, and directed by Rachel Talalay (Riverdale). It also stars Oona Laurence (Pete’s Dragon), Ian Ho (The Handmaid’s Tale), Alessio Scalzotto (Rim of the World) and Tamara Smart (The Worst Witch). It is still in production, but Soaps.com will update when a release date is known.
