Some fresh casting news for the latest Stephen King adaptation, Mercy, has hit the interwebs, and now’s your chance to find out just who from the cast of “The Walking Dead” and Super 8 have joined the fracas. Dig it!
THR reports that Chandler Riggs, the child star of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, and Super 8 star Joel Courtney ARE signing up for active duty on the project.
Universal Pictures is teaming with Jason Blum’s red-hot Blumhouse Productions banner on Mercy, a fantasy-horror movie based on Stephen King’s short story “Gramma,” published as part of his 1985 collection Skeleton Crew.
Peter Cornwell (The Haunting in Connecticut) will direct from a script by Matt Greenberg (1408), and Frances O’Connor (A.I.) is set to star.
The story follows two young boys who go with their single mother (O’Connor) to take care of their elderly, senile grandmother named Mercy, only to discover that she’s a witch who made a pact with a dark force many years before.
More as it comes.
