‘I Spit on Your Grave’ Villain Takes Evil Role in ‘The Dark Fields’

Andrew Howard – who can next be seen in his and Adam Mason’s creepy brain-child Pig here on Bloody Disgusting April 17 – will be playing the villain “Gennady” in Neil Burger’s The Dark Fields, which is currently in production in NYC. Starring Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Robert De Niro and Anna Friel, the story follows a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects, including “trip-switching,” a phenomenon in which time moves with a stop-motion quality. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him. Rogue Pictures has slated the thriller for release on March 18, 2011. Howard is also the villain in the Anchor Bay remake of I Spit on Your Grave. Adam Mason’s Pig premieres here on BD for FREE April 17 at 6PM PST.Pictured: Andrew Howard
