Sean Astin and Brano Eaton are starring in the pic, which also has Gillian Murray and Ryan Donowho as part of the cast. Mitch Ryan, meanwhile, has stepped into the shoes vacated by Ben Hollingsworth, whose schedule was crunched when he booked a role on CW’s midseason show “Cult.”
“The story kicks off when a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical-research island and a deadly virus is unleashed. The passengers must struggle to find a way to survive before their own demons and the flesh-eating bacteria consumes them all.”
Lydia will play a wide-eyed research grad student who is aligned with the film’s antagonist (Astin).
Comic book artist Kaare Andrews (who helmed the horrid Altitude) is directing from a screenplay penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher).
Shooting is due to begin mid-October in the Dominican Republic.
