More casting news has arrived for Jose Pendres’ new flick, The Divine Tragedies, and it’s another familiar genre favorite! Read on for the details, and look for additional goodies on this one soon!
From the Press Release
Writer/director Jose Prendes (THE HAUNTING OF WHALEY HOUSE) and producers Jon and James Kondelik are excited to welcome Sean Whalen (THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS, TWISTER, HATCHET III) to the cast of their new film.
“I wrote this really bizarre and sleazy character, who just so happened to have some endearing qualities, and I always had Sean in mind for it,” says Jose. “He was the first actor we went out to, and he said yes immediately after reading the script, which was great because I couldn’t see anyone else playing that role.”
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.
Sean’s character, Doug, sends the brothers on their journey early on with a nail-biting sequence that is guaranteed to be hard to sit through.
“I am excited to play Doug, the crack head in THE DIVINE TRAGEDIES,” say Sean. “It’s an actor’s dream part. It opens the film, and it is a tour de force. I hope I live up to Jose’s writing of the character. I’m going to bust my butt to do a good job, so Jose better make it look good because I plan to use this one on my reel!”
Filming begins at the end of February.
