Shiloh Fernandez became known to horror fans for his starring roles in both Deadgirl and Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, and he’ll soon be seen alongside Kevin Bacon in the pilot episode of Syfy’s “Tremors” TV series. He also just booked a role in Plume.
Deadline reports that both Fernandez and Harry Shum Jr. have come aboard the thriller, written and directed by Mike Gan. They join a cast that includes Josh Hutcherson, Suki Waterhouse and Tilda Cobham-Hervey.
“The film follows a lonely, unstable gas station attendant Melinda (Cobham-Hervey), tired of being overshadowed by her more confident, outgoing co-worker Sheila (Waterhouse). When the gas station is held at gunpoint by Billy (Hutcherson), a desperate man in need of quick cash, Melinda finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber, regardless of who gets hurt.”
Fernandez plays Perry, Sheila’s boyfriend who finds himself unwittingly enmeshed in Melinda’s dangerous games. Shum Jr. will play Officer Liu, a wholesome local police officer subject to the obsessive affections of Melinda.
Yale Productions’ Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, Michael J. Rothstein and Russ Posternak are producing with Sukee Chew of Hopscotch Pictures and Ash Christian of Cranium Entertainment.
