A quick cast and crew update has come in for The Asylum’s latest haunted house spooker, The Haunting of Whaley House, and as always we’re here to serve up the goods on a platter for ya! Dig it!
From the Press Release
The Whaley House is proud to officially announce the casting of cult icon Lynn Lowry! Lynn has been a fixture in horror films since she first appeared as a blood-crazed hippie in I Drink Your Blood and has gone on to work with George Romero in the original The Crazies and David Cronenberg in Shivers! Now the lovely and talented Lynn adds our humble little film to her oeuvre, and we couldn’t be happier!
“I’ve been a big fan of Lynn’s since I first saw her in The Crazies,” says writer/director Jose Prendes. “There is this ethereal beauty to her that makes her completely magnetic and you can’t help but keep your eyes firmly glued to her whenever she’s on screen. Signing Lynn on to the picture has completed a lifelong dream of mine to not only meet this iconic actress, but work with her as well. And the fact that she’s doing it because she loved the script and wanted to work with someone who admires her films means more to me than she could ever imagine.”
Also the film’s composer has been locked in, and the sinister score will be provided by newcomer Graham Denman, who is looking to put a unique spin on things musically.
“Jose has been a close friend of mine for many years, and I couldn’t be more excited to have such a big opportunity working on this film with him. With this score, I plan on delivering something in the vein of John Carpenter’s early stuff and especially Johnny Greenwood’s score for There Will Be Blood,” say Denman. “I like using random noises that most people overlook and stretching them out, playing with them, putting them in the background like this ominous thing buried beneath the music. I want this to be a one of a kind score. I really hope you all dig it.”
Produced by The Asylum, The Haunting of Whaley House begins filming on March 4th for an anticipated late 2012 release. Get daily updates on the production and stay connected through The Haunting of Whaley House official Facebook fan page.
