At the point when throwing the two driving performing artists in the film, Bertino needed Liv Tyler for the piece of Kristen. Tyler, who had not labored for quite a while after the introduction of her child, consented to take an interest in the film in the wake of perusing its script:[9] "I particularly preferred Bryan's method for saying a ton, yet not saying everything. Regularly in motion pictures, it's all spelled out for you, and the dialog is exceptionally logical. However, Bryan doesn't compose like that; he composes how ordinary individuals impart—with inquiries waiting. I knew it is intriguing to act that."[3] Canadian performing artist Scott Speedman was given a role as James. Speedman was likewise awed by the script, expressing that "the group of onlookers really inspires time to inhale with the characters before things get terrifying as damnation. That got me intrigued from the main pages".[3] 

In throwing the three veiled interlopers, Bertino picked Australian design display Gemma Ward for the piece of Dollface, feeling she had the correct "look" he had envisioned. In planning for the part, Ward read Willy nilly for motivation. Kip Weeks was then picked as the Man in the Veil, and TV performer Laura Margolis, who observed the script to be a genuine "page turner", was thrown in the piece of Stick Up Young lady.
