A bit of casting news has trickled in today for Jose Pendres’ new flick, The Divine Tragedies, and it’s a familiar genre favorite! Read on for the details.
From the Press Release
DIVINE TRAGEDIES ANNOUNCES THE CASTING OF KEN FOREE: Writer/director Jose Prendes (THE HAUNTING OF WHALEY HOUSE) and producers Jon and James Kondelik are excited to welcome the badass Ken Foree (DAWN OF THE DEAD, LORDS OF SALEM) to the cast of their new film.
“Ken is not only a good, hard-working actor but has such an iconic presence that he makes everything cool,” says Prendes. “We sent the script to him, and he got back to us the very next day with a simple ‘I’m in’. We are beyond thrilled to have him on board.”
DIVINE TRAGEDIES, based loosely on the famous Leopold and Loeb murder case, tells the tale of Charles Brubaker (Graham Denman, The Haunting of Whaley House) and his half-brother Thomas Lo Bianco (Jon Kondelik, Airplane Vs. Volcano), who concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder, and when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives, they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree), a cop with a very special gift, is hot on their trail.
“Jose Prendes is one of the most promising up-and-coming directors,” say Ken. “I’m looking forward to our collaboration and working with the producers on this exciting film. I’m very anxious for shooting to begin. I know it will be a wonderful, creative adventure for all of us.”
Filming begins at the end of February.
