Two more names have been added to the cast of Adam Green’s sequel to his original bloodbath, Hatchet 2 and we couldn’t be happier!
Shock Till You Drop learned exclusively today that both A.J. Bowen (The Signal, The House Of The Devil) and Tom Holland (the director of Fright Night) are the latest additions to the cast of the production which begins shooting early January.
Bowen will be playing Layton a hunter who Green tells Shock, “is part of a group that Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd) hires to go into the swamp to kill Victor Crowley.”
Tom Holland will play Marybeth’s Uncle Bob, the brother of Robert Englund’s character from the first film and one of the lead roles of Hatchet 2. “Fright Night is a big influence on me,” says Green. “And from conversations I’ve had with Tom about that movie, he clearly gets how to make humor work with horror.”
Both will be joining the previously announced Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Clare Grant, R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III), Kathryn Fiore, Parry Shen, Rileah Vanderbilt, Ed Ackerman, Rick McCallum, Colton Dunn, David Foy, and Kane Hodder as Victor Crowley.
