A couple of days ago we told you about Henry Rollins’ new project, He Never Died, and now through the power of internet wizardry, we have some artwork and the official plot details for ya!
Rollins is starring in indie horror-thiller He Never Died as Jack, who has prolonged life by buying stolen blood, until his criminal past come back to haunt him.
Shooting starts today in Toronto.
Grand Theft Auto 5 star Steven Ogg has come on board to co-star with Rollins. Jason Krawczyk, who also is directing, wrote the script with Rollins in mind for the lead. “He is the central cerebral reference for the role of Jack and the embodiment of the character,” Krawczyk said.
Rollins read the role a year ago and met Krawczyk and producer Zach Hagen of Alternate Ending Studio and “basically begged” for the opportunity to be involved, he said. “It’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read,” he added. “As a character, Jack is perhaps far less than normal, which suits me very well. He’s not all that bad a guy, which is different. I don’t get many of those. He is in a very rare and strange situation, and I really want to be part of the action.”
Independent producer Adam J. Shully and 108 Media boarded the project as a financing partner and sales company during Toronto. Abhi Rastogi, CEO of 108 Media, said, “For us it’s an excellent intellectual property in the vein of Sin City with considerable transmedia potential. Our next step will be to develop a TV pilot.”
An exceptionally prolonged life brings depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television for six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life – shelled away from social interactions. A fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now sober up, trying to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of responsibility and self-worth.
