“Oz” actor Jon Seda, who was most recently rumored to be starring in horror/thriller/creature feature (?) Disturbed directed by Bill Eagles, updated B-D on the project backstage at last Thursday night’s Saturn Awards and indicated it may not actually be happening at all. Read on for the details.
“I’m kinda involved, but I’m not sure if I’m actually gonna be involved, so it’s kinda still up in the air,” said Seda. “I know it’s going around with me as really being involved, but it might not be as true as you think…I’m not sure where they really are with it, so…I don’t know [what the hold up is], I know there’s been some scheduling problems, some financing problems, dates have been pushed, which then once the dates are pushed then I’m working, other actors are working as well. So I’m hoping in the end it all comes together and gets finished. I think it has a good premise, I think we haven’t had that many really good…horror films lately, [with] that mystery kind of [element]. And I think this has a shot to be that. I hope it all [comes] together.”
Sounds like an intriguing project, so would be interesting to see this one come to fruition. Of course as we well know, in Hollywood nothing is ever certain until the film is in the can.
Assuming it ever gets off the ground, Arielle Kebbel (The Uninvited, The Grudge 2, Freakdog), Jon Seda (“Oz”), Moran Atias (The Next Three Days), Lauren Cohan (“Supernatural”), Tad Hilgenbrinck (The Hills Run Red) and Shaun Sipos (The Grudge 2, Rampage) would star in the film penned by Eitan Arussi and Martin Friend.
SYNOPSIS: “Having just arrived in sultry Puerto Rico, a straight-arrow medical researcher “Claire” (Cohan) is excited to see her fiancé “Jack” (Sipos) after a six-month separation. But Jack has changed…his eyes have been opened and his cozy assumptions challenged by his time in the field working with the poor of Puerto Rico, and by fiery local beauty “Yara” (Atias) and her fiercely jealous lover “Hector” (Jon Seda). Jack’s not sure he wants what Claire wants anymore.
Having their `uber-successful’ and sexed up friends, “Sam” (Kebbel) and “Vince” (Hilgenbrinck), along for the trip doesn’t give them much space to work out their problems. But the lovers’ distress is magnified a thousand fold when they find themselves abandoned on a deserted island by the suspicious Hector – and confront a horror born of vivisection, human experimentation and madness.”
