Gates of Darkness director Don FauntLeRoy’s indie mystery-thriller Awaken has just snagged a killer cast including Tobin Bell (Saw), Lance Henriksen (Aliens) and Ed Asner (Up).
Deadline reports that Awaken will follow Oliver Cook (Agron), a wealthy businessman who is dealing with the loss of his only child. It is a mystery whether she was murdered or kidnapped.
No one has a clue in this tale of murder and revenge that involves Oliver’s wife (Khmara), his lawyer (Bell), a person from the past (Henriksen), a stripper (Adams), a recluse (Asner) and a mysterious woman (Hoffman). As Oliver begins to unravel the mystery, he learns that events of the deep past have a direct bearing on his family’s survival.
Don FauntLeRoy (Gates of Darkness) will direct Awaken from a screenplay written by Charles Agron. It co-stars Krista Dane Hoffman (The Caregiver), Alyona Khmara (Ford v Ferrari), Kayla Adams (Ad Astra) and Charles Agron (Monday at 11:01am). Armand Gazarian (Ghost Hunter Diaries) will produce while Agron’s K Street Pictures is set to distribute.
