This scribe (pictured right) just got in from a whirlwind visit from the set of 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, which is currently shooting Day 13 of 25 in Vancouver, Canada, and while I can’t spill much yet (although blood was spilled there gratuitously), I can give you an update on casting.
Joining the previously announced Kiele (A Perfect Getaway) Sanchez (taking over the ‘Stella’ role played by Melissa George in the original 30 Days of Night), Mia (Depalma’s The Black Dahlia) Kirschner, Rhys (“Entourage”) Coiro, Diora (Night of the Demons) Baird, and Harold (“Lost”) Perrineau are Troy (A Marine Story) Ruptash as Agent Norris, Jackson Berlin, John De Santis, Marco Sorian, and Katherine (Ginger Snaps, “Supernatural”) Isabelle, whose scene that Dread witnessed was rather disquieting (and I mean that in the best of ways – director Ben Ketai is throwing down with this one).
My thanks to Sony and the production’s amazing unit publicist Lorraine Jamison – possibly the best I’ve ever worked with. More to come soon on the Steve Niles-Ben Ketai scripted bloodbath. In the interim check out some atmosphere shots from the set below.
