As we learned late last year, the legendary Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling) is next heading into supernatural territory with Labirintus, which he’s describing as a spine-tingling chiller. Along with plot details, we’ve got the first casting news for you today, so read on for everything you need to know!
Variety reports that Green Room star Mark Webber (below) has been cast in the lead role of Dante’s latest, and he’ll be joined by Rachel Hurd-Wood (An American Haunting) and Lorant Deutsch (The Visitors: Bastille Day).
Labirintus tells the story of a paranormal investigator (Webber), psychiatric researcher (Hurd-Wood), and engineer (Deutsch) who join forces to explore an abandoned subterranean Soviet research facility, hidden within the dark twisting catacombs beneath Buda Castle. When supernatural forces confound and torment the group, they begin to question their own sanity. To escape, they must quash their fears and lead their team to find and destroy the dark heart of the maze.
Written by Alan Campbell, Labirintus is produced by Fabrice Lambot of France’s Metaluna Prods., Lucy Mukerjee-Brown of Mukerjee-Brown Prods., Elizabeth Stanley of Elizabeth Stanley Pictures, and Jean-Charles Levy of Forecast Pictures. Nick Quested and Pascal Degove, managing director of Goldcrest, will serve as executive producers for Goldcrest.
