Monaghan & Rodriguez Join Fortuna

Dominic Monhaghan joins FortunaDominic Monaghan and Freddy Rodriguez have signed on to star in a new horror thriller that tells of a future just a little too close to reality right now, Fortuna. THR reports this morning that the film, written and directed by Barthelemy Grossman, (13 m2) begins its six-week shoot in Nova Scotia on November 10th.

Fortuna is set in a future where economic crisis has left a very few very rich and millions and millions very, very poor. In order to try and reduce poverty by 30%-50%, the titular game is created. One in one thousand who play will win a fortune and be promoted to upper class, but as with all such futuristic games, things aren't all they seem. Monaghan and Rodriguez will portray a pair of desperate men who play the game despite fears that none of the contestants will make it through alive.

Monaghan will soon be seen in the graverobber story I Sell the Dead alongside Ron Perlman; Rodriguez was last seen by horror fans in Robert Rodriguez’s half of Grindhouse, Planet Terror. We’ll be watching Fortuna very closely so expect more soon!
