Ian Somerhalder, star of the hit TV show Lost, has joined the cast of Wes Craven’s The Breed, according to Moviehole.net. The film tells of two brothers, one a highly athletic daredevil and the other a much more serious and sensitive type, who in the midst of trying to patch up their wonky relationship – on a getaway at their Uncle’s house – are forced to flee a pack of vicious killer dogs – the titular ‘Breed’. Read on for the story…Moviehole writes, “Filmmaker Nick Mastandrea has found a star for his new horror pic “The Breed” – and he’s straight off a deserted island.
“Lost” fave Ian Somerhalder has won a plum role in Wes Craven produced “The Breed”, shooting in South Africa later this week.
Somerhalder, whose film credits include “The Rules of Attraction” and “Life as a House”, will play one of two distinctly different brothers who wind up on a deserted island only to do battle with evil, but strangely-smart dogs.
Wes Craven and David Lancaster are the executive producers. Giulio Biccari ["Dracula 3000"] is the DOP. Director Mastandrea was Craven’s first assistant director on “Cursed”, “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” and the “Scream” series.
“The Breed” should hit theatres next year.”
