Warner Bros. and Dark Castle Films are getting prepped to shoot their remake to the classic Vincent Price flick, House of Wax, which was also a remake of the 1933 film Mystery of Wax. Inside you’ll find three new additions to the cast next to Paris Hilton, Elisha Cuthbert and Chad Michael Murray. The film is set for an October 10th release, NOT in 3-D.
Moviehole writes, “Brian Van Holt, probably best known for his role as Michael Boxer in last year’s “S.W.A.T”, has joined the cast of the “House of Wax” remake in Queensland. Van Holt is the sixth actor to have flown from the states for the film.
Another new addition to the cast is local Australian actress Emma Lung. Lung, who’s credits include “Ned” and “Garage Days”, is one of only a few local actors to have scored roles in the film. The other prominent Australian face in the cast is Damon Herriman, who co-starred with Lung in “Ned” and is remembered for his role in the mini-series “Brides of Christ”.
The film – now shooting at Warner Bros Movie World on the Gold Coast – features “24″ star Elisha Cuthbert as Sally Jones, Jared Padalecki as Wade, Paris Hilton (who’s been ordered to lose weight apparently) as Shannon Taylor, and Chad Michael Murray as Adam Anderson. Jon Abrahams ["Scary Movie"] also has a role.”
