Henry Rollins — a major multi-tasker as musician, writer, journalist, publisher, radio host, actor and activist — has assumed a new role as leading man.
Best known as the frontman for seminal punk band Black Flag, Rollins, who starred in Feast and Wrong Turn 2, returns to horror with the indie horror-thiller He Never Died as Jack, who has prolonged life by buying stolen blood, until his criminal past come back to haunt him, Variety says.
Jason Krawczyk directs. “Grand Theft Auto 5” star Steven Ogg has come onboard to co-star with Rollins.
“An exceptionally prolonged life brings depression and a detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, pays bingo daily, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life and he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk the tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.”
Shooting starts Nov. 13 in Toronto.
