In a day brimming with all manner of casting news that began with Tom Cruise playing Van Helsing of all things, yet more additions have come our way. Next up … WER.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vik Sahay, best known for his comedic work on NBC’s “Chuck” and the recent American Reunion movie, is moving into horror movie territory, closing a deal to join the cast of WER.
Sahay joins A.J. Cook (“Criminal Minds”), Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) and Brian J. O’Connor (Epic Movie) to round out the main cast of the werewolf flick being directed by William Brent Bell (The Devil Inside).
The story is set in Paris and follows an investigation of a gruesome slaying of a family. Sahay is a member of the defense team which learns its client (O’Connor), who is a suspect in the slayings, is a werewolf.
WER starts shooting in Bucharest, Romania this month.
Steven Schneider, producer of The Devil Inside, The Tall Man and the Paranormal Activity films, is producing the film with Matthew Peterman (who wrote the screenplay) and Morris Paulson through their production company Prototype. Robert Hall and his newly re-branded Almost Human Inc. is tackling the makeup and visual effects for WER.
