Katie Featherston on Twitter
ABC has been pretty quiet with regard to its plans for upcoming mid-season replacement “The River”, but thanks to the magic of Twitter, we have some news as to a guest star who will be appearing on the show. It’s none other than Paranormal Activity franchise star Katie Featherston!
Katie tweeted the tidbit of info late last week as follows: “Shooting an episode of The River! I am having a ton of fun…”
No other details are available as to her part just yet, and when we ran into Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli, one of the series’ executive producers, at the Scream Awards this past weekend, he was as tight-lipped about “The River” as he is all his projects, but as soon as we hear anything else, so will you!
Bruce Greenwood, Leslie Hope, Joe Anderson, Jeff Galfer, and Thomas Kretschmann star in the ABC Studios television project whose pilot episode was directed by none other than Jaume Collet-Serra (The Orphan, House of Wax). Along with Peli, the other exec producers include Michael Green (also a co-writer with Michael R. Perry), Zack Estrin, Jason Blum, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, and Steve Schneider.
The River follows the story of wildlife expert and TV personality Emmet Cole. Emmet set course around the world with his wife, Tess, and son, Lincoln, while filming what would become one of the most popular shows in television. After he goes missing deep in the Amazon, his family, friends, and crew set out on a mysterious and deadly journey to find him.
Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) went looking for magic deep in the uncharted Amazon and never returned. The shocking truth about his disappearance is out there, somewhere, just waiting to be discovered. To the millions of kids who grew up watching his nature show, Dr. Cole was a hero. To his own son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), he was more of an enigma. Now, six months after he vanished, Lincoln is finally ready to bury the past when Dr. Cole’s emergency beacon suddenly goes off. At the urging of his mother, Tess (Leslie Hope), Lincoln reluctantly joins her on a search for his father. To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole’s cagey ex-producer, Clark (Paul Blackthorne), film the mission documentary-style. The mixed crew of old friends and new acquaintances includes the sexy and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa), and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann).
