UFC Fighter Cathal Pendred to Spin Lore


In what is probably going to be the most unexpected news of the day… Deadline is reporting that UFC fighter-turned-actor Cathal Pendred is set for a lead role in Amazon’s adaptation of the horror podcast Lore, which recounts true stories of frightening and paranormal occurrences.

Pendred will play Michael Cleary, a real-life character from Irish folklore, in the horror anthology series. A cooper who makes barrels for a local creamery, Michael is married to the younger Bridget. When Bridget starts making more money than he does and starts questioning his decisions, Michael is convinced that his loving wife has been replaced by a changeling — and he will do literally anything to prove himself right.

Lore is executive produced by Aaron Mahnke, Gale Anne Hurd, Propagate’s Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens, and Brett-Patrick Jenkins.
