Dark Sky Films and Glass Eye Pix announced today that Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) has joined the cast of the epic vampire road film Stake Land, which also stars the previously announced Danielle Harris.
The film, written by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici and directed by Jim Mickle (Mulberry Street), takes place following a global spread of vampirism.
McGillis plays a nun who joins a small team of survivors (including Damici and Connor Paolo of “Gossip Girl”) as they make a treacherous journey north to safety through the war-torn U.S. McGillis’ character, “Sister,” faces a crisis of faith during the vampire bloodshed, ultimately taking up arms to do battle with her newly formed family unit.
The film is produced by Dark Sky Films and Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix with producers Derek Curl, Peter Phok, Brent Kunkle, Adam Folk, and Fessenden, who also appears in the film.
Stake Land is currently filming in New York and Pennsylvania.
