Exclusive: Wrong Turn 5 Wraps, Extensive Photo Gallery and Update!
With writer/director Declan O’Brien’s Wrong Turn 5 having wrapped today in Bulgaria, here are an exclusive and extensive photo gallery from our set visit and an update on the production. Read on!
Having just returned from four days on the Sofia, Bulgaria set (the production at the time was shooting at UFO Studios just outside the city), here’s a bit of a casting update. As we previously reported, television actress Camilla Arfwedson has joined the cast of the film as ‘Sheriff Angela,’ the female lead who finds herself at odds with the series’ backwoods nemeses The Hillicker Brothers, this time portrayed by Bobi Dilev as ‘Three Finger’ (the only actor to ever reprise that role in the series), Radoslav Purvanov as ‘One Eye’ and Georgi Karlukovski as ‘Saw Tooth.’
Joining them are actors Simon Ginty as ‘Billy,’ Oliver Hoare as ‘Julian,’ Amy Lennox as ‘Cruz,’ Paul Luebke (Djinn) as ‘Gus,’ Duncan Wisbey as ‘Mose,’ Kyle Redmond -Jones (The Edge of Love) as ‘Deputy Biggs,’ Peter Brooke as ‘Jason,’ horror vet Doug Bradley (Hellraiser) as ‘Maynard,’ Roxanne McKee ("Game of Thrones") as ‘Lita,’ Finn Jones as ‘Teddy,’ Andrew Bone as ‘George’ and Rosie Holden as ‘Ginny.’
Produced by Jeff Beach and Philip Roth, Wrong Turn 5 employed the SFX makeup talents of Valentin Vulov and Lubomir, with Kess Bonnet serving as the Production Designer and Emil Topuzov as the Director of Photography. Filmed over the course of nineteen days, the time we spent on the set was filled with Grand Guignol-inspired slaughter, impressive car crashes, gun-fire, decapitation, ingestion of intestines, and one rather momentous explosion, to start. With a short post-production phase, the flick is slated for an October, 2012 release via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Coming shortly are video interviews with filmmaker O’Brien (this will be the third Wrong Turn flick he’s helmed) and star Bradley, as well as extensive behind-the-scenes video and in-depth set visit coverage as the flick’s release nears.
In the next chilling chapter of Wrong Turn, a small West Virginia town is hosting the legendary Mountain Man Festival on Halloween, where throngs of costumed partygoers gather for a wild night of music and mischief. But an inbred family of hillbilly cannibals kill the fun when they trick and treat themselves to a group of visiting college students who are dying for a good time...
