Last week casting news starting coming in on the upcoming project Devil, which is being helmed by John Dowdle (Quarantine). And now we have some details on just who is going to be bringing the Devil to life.
The special effects for Devil are being created by Robert Hall and Almost Human Studios. Hall, who wrote and directed (and created some pretty badass kills for) recent Grimmy-winner Laid to Rest, previously worked with Dowdle on Quarantine.
Almost Human recently created effects for the upcoming flick The Crazies, as well as for The Burrowers and the FEARNet web series (which Hall also helmed) “Fear Clinic.”
“I am thrilled to get to work with the Dowdles again after collaborating with them on Quarantine,” said Hall. “Even though I can’t really discuss the plot details for Devil, what I can say is that this is one of the best scripts I have read in a while, and I am very happy to be a part of the project.”
Devil is based on a story by M. Night Shyamalan and falls under the new Night Chronicles banner that teams up Shyamalan with Media Rights Capital to bring fans a genre flick once a year for the next three years.
Serving as producers on Devil are Sam Mercer, Drew Dowdle, and Shyamalan. Filming starts in Toronto on October 26th.
