Titus Welliver (“Lost”) is set to star in the CW’s zombie thriller “Awakening,” reports Deadline. The project is about two sisters, Jenna (Lucy Griffiths) and Jayce (Meredith Hagner), coming of age and facing off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising. Welliver will play The Hunter, a middle-aged man with silver hair and piercing eyes who is from a family of legendary Zombie Hunters.
In more casting news, Paul Blackthorne (“Lipstick Jungle”) has just been cast in the ABC drama pilot “The River” directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, House of Wax). The horror thriller centers on Lincoln Cole (Joe Anderson) who, after his famous TV explorer father Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) goes missing way up the Amazon, reluctantly abandons his medical studies and follows in his father’s footsteps. Blackthorne will play the producer of Emmet Cole’s long-running documentary series. The film comes from the brain behind Paranormal Activity.
