“American Horror Story” star Dylan McDermott has signed on to star in Freezer, an action thriller that Envision Media Arts will finance, says the Hollywood Reporter. McDermott also stars in the Stephen King adaptation Mercy.
Mikael Salomon (HBO’s “Band of Brothers”) will direct from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld.
“The story centers on an everyday guy (McDermott) who finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs. They insist he returns the $8 million dollars he stole from them — the only problem is, he has no idea what they are talking about. As he fights for his life before freezing to death, the truth slowly reveals itself.”
The film will shoot this month in Edmonton.
