Unknowns Line Cast for ‘The Bay’, AKA ‘Isopod’!

A cast of unknowns are getting their chance at stardom in Barry Levinson’s The Bay (aka Isopod), which is now filming from a screenplay by Michael Wallach. Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively that the film will star Will Rogers (Happy New Year) as “Alex,” Steven Kunken (All Good Things, “Law & Order”) as “Dr. Abrams,” Kether Donohue as “Donna,” Frank Deal (“Fringe,” Antibody) as “Mator John Stockman,” Christopher Denham (Shutter Island) as “Sam,” and lastly, Kristin Connelly (Bicentennial Man ) as “Stephanie”. On the 4th of July in 2011, an unprecedented biological disaster is unleashed from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. An isopod parasite, carrying untreatable, mutated diseases, jumps from fish to human host and replaces them with itself. Seven years later, the true horror and scope of the event, captured mainly on home videos by the town’s now long-dead victims, is revealed to the public for the first time. The pic is being produced by Paranormal Activity/Insidious/Area51 team of Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Steven Schneider, along with Brian Kavanagh Jones (Skyline, Insidious).
