Stephen Lang & Keith David Join THE SEVENTH DAY
Fangoria and Cinestate have just snagged Memento and Prometheus actor Guy Pearce for their upcoming horror flick The Seventh Day from director Justin P. Lange (The Dark).
Pitched as Training Day meets The Exorcist, the film follows a renowned exorcist who teams up with a rookie priest for his first day of training. As they plunge deeper into hell on earth, the lines between good and evil blur, and their own demons emerge.
Sounds like fun to me!
Better yet, today Deadline reports that Stephen Lang (Avatar), Keith David (The Thing) have joined the cast! Lang will co-star as serious and deeply pious archbishop of the Catholic Diocese of New Orleans. David will portray Father Louis, a mentor to Father Peter (Pearce) in his youth.
Other cast members include Chris Galust (Give Me Liberty), Robin Bartlett (City Of Angels), and Brady Jenness (The Sinner). Bartlett is set to portray Helen, a New Orleans social worker. Galust will play young Father Peter, and Jenness will portray Charlie Giroux, a young boy accused of a heinous crime while allegedly under the influence of demonic possession.
Directed by Justin P. Lange (The Dark) from a screenplay he penned himself, The Seventh Day will be produced by Dallas Sonnier (Dragged Across Concrete) and Amanda Presmyk (VFW) for Cinestate and Fangoria. Kimberly Hwang and Chelsea Davenport also produce.
