Canadian producers Unstable Ground are hard at work packaging and developing THE ETERNAL, and have some new exciting news. The first cast member has agreed to join lead Adam Wilson in this foray into madness and bloodletting. Highly-talented character actor James Lorinz (from the cult-hits FRANKENHOOKER and STREET TRASH) will play a major role in the film. This film will mark Lorinz’s return to the genre, his first horror-related film since the early 90s. “Lorinz was my first choice for the character, it was tailored for him“, stated director Justin McConnell, “his performance in Frankenhooker is so acclaimed for a reason.” Read on for even more news on this project.
Additionally, the FX crews have been lined up for the film. Joining art director/co-producer Kevin Hutchinson (Dawn of the Dead remake, Bottom Feeder) will be Toronto FX-veteran Matthew Dewilde (Pontypool, Stir of Echoes 2, Heartstopper). Geoff Hill (Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead) will be spearheading the pyro and practical FX. World-renowned stunt coordinator Plato Fountidakis (Chronicles of Riddick, Splice, Silent Hill) has also joined the team. Rounding everything out nicely will be an original score by Rob Kleiner (of the well-loved underground band Tub Ring) and Jasan Stepp (Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist, and the band Dog Fashion Disco). More cast and crew details will arrive as they become available.
The short film prequel, ENDING THE ETERNAL, has just been made the official selection of two more film festivals: TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL and DEAD CHANNELS (San Francisco). More details to follow later.
