Sean (Silent Night, Zombie Night) Cain, director of the upcoming Hammer Films/ArsonCuff Entertainment horror feature Breath of Hate, tipped Dread off today of his casting of actor Jason Mewes. The Clerks and Feast alum will star in Breath of Hate alongside the previously announced Ezra (Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2) Buzzington and Felissa (Return to Sleepaway Camp) Rose.
“Audiences know him as the foul-mouthed Jay in the Kevin Smith movies, but he’s got a sweet side that’s the perfect counterpoint to the darkness in our story,” says Cain. “His character is a gamer nerd who falls for an escort. It’s through his love that he brings her back from being a walking suicide.”
Also joining the cast of Hate, which revolves around (according to the PR) “a young woman in the escort business who, on her last job, is confronted by a trio of escaped mental patients looking to change the world – one victim at a time,” are Lauren Walsh (18 Year Old Virgin), Jack Forcinito (Silent Night, Zombie Night), Ted Prior (Surf Nazis Must Die) and Alexis Sibolis (Plaguers). Breath of Hate begins filming in late summer in Los Angeles, CA.
As for Silent Night, Zombie Night, Cain tells us, “We just did the sound mix this past weekend. It turned out so awesome. The music and sound design (are) way beyond what I thought possible. All that’s left is the color timing, and it’s all done!”
