In light of the news we received earlier today that Michael Biehn is flexing his director muscle on another project, it’s not a huge surprise that he’s stepped away from ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2. Who’s replacing him? None other than Welsh actor Owain Yeoman.
Yeoman is best known to TV watchers from his roles in “The Mentalist”, “Kitchen Confidential”, and “The Nine”. He’s also a classically trained actor who graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London in 2003.
Director Rob Hall penned the Laid to Rest 2 script with producing partner Kevin Bocarde. Hall, Bocarde and Chang Tseng are producing the film under their Dry County Entertainment banner.
Returning for the sequel are original Laid to Rest stars Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010) and Nick Principe, donning the by now familiar mask of ChromeSkull. Along with Yeoman their new co-stars include Brian Austin Green (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “90210”), Christopher Nelson (Kill Bill: Volume 1, The Tripper), Jennifer Blanc (Bereavement, The Victim) and Danielle Harris (Halloween, Stake Land, Hatchet II).
