We just got a heads-up from the guys behind The Eternal, the feature film version of the kick ass short “Ending the Eternal” that’s in pre-production now, that the first casting decision has been made; and it’s unexpected to say the least!
James Lorinz, he of Street Trash and Frankenhooker fame, will make his return to horror taking on a “major role” in Eternal. “Lorinz was my first choice for the character; it was tailored for him,” director Justin McConnell said in a press release. “His performance in Frankenhooker is so acclaimed for a reason.”
They’ve also nabbed Rob Kleiner, whose Chicago-based bizarro band Tub Ring was a staple of my youth, for scoring duties, along with Matthew Dewilde (Stir of Echoes 2) and Geoff Hill (Land of the Dead) for the film’s pyro and practical effects.
Hopefully the casting will continue along these strange, unexpected lines as The Eternal‘s pre-production moves forward. Keep one eye here and one on the official Eternal site for updates!
