Producers Adam Shully and Zach Hagen of Alternate Ending Studios are thrilled to announce that principal photography got underway this week in Toronto on the previously announced crime-horror-thriller He Never Died.
Written and being directed by indie helmer Jason Krawczyk (The Briefcase), He Never Died stars punk icon Henry Rollins as Jack, pictured, a mysterious loner who has lived an inexplicably long life fueled by blood lust and filled with crime and violence. Rollins also serves as an Executive Producer on the project.
Rollins is joined on screen by the Twilight franchise star Boo Boo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Kate Greenhouse (The Dark Hours), and Jordan Todosey (Degrassi: The Next Generation”). Steven Ogg, who is fresh off his success playing the popular character Trevor in the critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto V, has also joined the cast, choosing to validate the long-standing argument that video game and motion capture performers are talented actors in their own right. Three days after the release, the game had surpassed $1 billion in sales, making it the fastest selling entertainment product in history.
“He Never Died follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life – he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jake must now walk a 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.“
