Since appearing in both Seasons One and Two of “American Horror Story,” Dylan McDermott’s career, especially in the horror genre, has been revitalized; and we now have the first word on what the actor will be up to next!
From the Press Release
Actor Dylan McDermott has signed on to star in Freezer, an action-thriller shooting this month in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, producers said today. Mikael Salomon is directing the film from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld.
Salomon previously collaborated with McDermott on the TV miniseries “The Grid.” Lee Nelson and David Buelow are producing the movie for Envision Media.
McDermott will play Robert, an everyday guy, who finds himself “tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs,” a synopsis said.
“They insist he return the $8 million he stole from them. The only problem is, Robert has no idea what they are talking about. As he fights for his life before freezing to death, the truth slowly reveals itself.”
“We are excited that Dylan McDermott and Mikael Salomon have come together on this project,” producer Lee Nelson said in a statement. “Their collaboration will combine Dylan’s intensity as an actor with Salomon’s powerful direction to capture an edge of your seat fight for life.”
McDermott is best known for his work in the TV shows “The Practice” and “American Horror Story.” His film credits include Steel Magnolias, The Campaign and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Salomon helmed Hard Rain and A Far Off Place. He also worked as the cinematographer on The Abyss, Always, Arachnophobia, Backdraft and Far and Away.
