John Rhys-Davies is one of the busiest actors in all of Hollywood, with a whopping 241 acting credits to his name at the time of writing this. You may recognize him from The Lord of the Rings or any number of Syfy original movies, and today we’ve got details on his next project. Read on!
Variety reports that the veteran Welsh actor is both starring in and executive producing Evolutionary Films’ action-horror flick Aux, with shooting set to begin on January 13th.
Aux begins when two young boys discover the entrance to a secret military bunker that has been undetected since World War II with both subsequently killed. A police investigation is initiated but the officers are killed in grotesque and mysterious ways while a WWII veteran in a nursing home — played by Rhys-Davies — sees these events unfolding on the news and believes he may know what is going on.
John Adams, the CEO of London-based Evolutionary, is directing from a script he co-wrote with Peter Adams. Diane Shorthouse is producing.
