And expectations are rising for fans! DC learned today via press release that Sid has joined the likes of Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man, “Saints and Sinners”), Chris Mulkey (The Hidden, Cloverfield), and Billy Drago (The Untouchables, “Masters of Horror: Imprint”) on Dana Mennie’s upcoming horror opus Dark Moon Rising.
The forthcoming film tells the tale of Amy, a small-town girl whose life is redefined when she falls in love with Dan, a mysterious drifter who brings with him a family curse and unimaginable horror. Things seem to be all sunshine and roses for our couple until Dan’s father Bender (aka Darkman) shows up to raise a little, or in this case, a lot of hell in the normally quiet town. Expect locals to get involved and chaos to ensue! Sign me up!
“I’m really anxious to get started on this film, for a lot of reasons. There are some people in the cast that I have always wanted to work with. The story is solid, smart, passionate and cleverly constructed. And for once, I’m on the receiving end of the mayhem, which gives me an opportunity to stretch my legs in a new direction“, Haig says.
Written and directed by Mennie, principal photography on Dark Moon Rising ends in June.
