So we’ve got our heroes for David Slade’s upcoming adaptation of Steve Niles’ 30 Days of Night, but who will play our villains? I mean, seriously, Josh Harnett and Melissa George are fine, but I want to know who’s going to be making their Alaskan lives hell…
Today The Hollywood Reporter learned that that man will be Danny Huston (pictured), a character actor who’s been around for a while and director of the 1987 TV movie Bigfoot. If you’ve been in a hole and not sure what Days is about, allow me to remind you that it’s the story of a gang of vampires, led by Huston’s character, who take over the Alaskan town of Barrow as it enters a 30-day phase in which the sun never comes out.
Be sure to hit the official site for Ghost House Pictures to check out their ongoing series of webisodes detailing the making of 30 Days of Night; it’s pretty cool stuff!
