Kyle Gallner (A Nightmare on Elm Street American Sniper, The Finest Hours), Alan Ritchson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Hunger Games), Billy Zane (Titanic, Tombstone, Demon Knight) and Shaun Toub (Iron Man, “Homeland”) have joined the cast of Eric Bress’ supernatural psychological thriller Ghosts of War, Bloody Disgusting learned today.
Principal photography has commenced in Bulgaria on the film that stars Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Maleficent), Theo Rossi (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Luke Cage”), and Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect 1 & 2).
Ghosts of War follows five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield.
The five soldiers will be played by: Thwaites as Chris Goodson; Rossi as Kirk; Astin as Eugene; Gallner as Tappert; Ritchson as Butchie; and Zane in an undisclosed role. Toub will fill the role of Mr. Helwig.
Miscellaneous Entertainment’s D. Todd Shepherd, Shelley Madison, and Joe Simpson are producing and financing the project alongside Colleen Camp. Adrian Jayasinha will Executive Produce alongside Bernard Stewart, Billy Zane and Andrew Mann. Highland Film Group is handling international sales.
