Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Jonathan Sadowski and Chinaza Uche have joined the cast of the newly-titled Shookum Hills, the horror-thriller directed by Brad Parker (Chernobyl Diaries), as revealed by award-filmmakers Julio and Diego Hallivis, aka The Hallivis Brothers.
They join previously announced cast members Alicia Sanz, Adan Canto, Will Patton and Zach Avery in the film from 1inMM Productions.
In the film, a geological expedition to an Appalachian sinkhole becomes a terrifying fight for survival against a mysterious deadly force.
Shookum Hills is being financed by 1inMM Productions, and being produced by Julio and Diego Hallivis (1inMM), Alejandro De Leon, and Andres Rosende. Jared Ian Goldman is Executive Producing. The script was penned by Eric Scherbarth and Stefan Jaworski, with the film currently in production this month in Kentucky.
Uche has recently been seen as one of the leads in the critically-acclaimed Tribeca Film Festival premiere Nigerian Prince, directed by Faraday Okoro.
While Parker is best known as the director of Chernobyl Diaries, he is also known as a visual effects supervisor on films such as We Own the Night and Let Me In, as well as second unit director of Dawn of the Apes and War For the Planet of the Apes.
1inMM Productions is in post-production on the film Hell is Where the Home Is, a home invasion thriller directed by Orson Oblowitz and starring Angela Trimbur, Jonathan Howard, Janel Parrish, Fairuza Balk and Zach Avery.
