More casting news has come in for Blumhouse Productions’ Mercy as Deadline is reporting that Mark Duplass has signed on to the fantasy-horror project based on a short from Stephen King’s Skeleton Crew collection.
The flick, from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, stars Dylan McDermott, Frances O’Connor, Chandler Riggs, Joel Courtney, Shirley Knight and Chris Browning.
Peter Cornwell is directing this adaptation of the Stephen King short story from his Skeleton Crew novel from a script by Matt Greenberg. Jason Blum will produce with McG and Mary Viola from Wonderland Sound and Vision.
