It surprises me that not one of Argentinian director Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s films are available here in the UK, but I have been keeping my fingers crossed that films like Cold Sweat, Penumbra and Here Comes the Devil will arrive here soon. However, what is more upsetting is that the director is now hard at work on his new werewolf horror, Late Phases, and I worry that this film will also take an age to be released in the UK!
However, to keep up our interest, today I can share with you the latest casting news on the film, plus the first ever image courtesy of EW.
MPI’s Dark Sky, who is co-producing LATE PHASES with Zak Zeman’s Site B Productions, has also announced that they will bring on Glass Eye Pix. Previous Dark Sky and Glass Eye collaborations include successful genre films such as The House of the Devil, Stake Land, The Innkeepers, and others. Zak Zeman comes in fresh off the heels of his Sundance success with V/H/S/2. Brent Kunkle will produce for Glass Eye Pix after his success with last year’s The Comedy.
Nick Damici (Stake Land) was cast in the lead role back in February, and joining him will be Ethan Embry (Can’t Hardly Wait), Erin Cummings (above, Spartacus), Lance Guest (Halloween II), Tom Noonan (Manhunter), Tina Louise (Stepford Wives), Karen Lynn Gorney (Saturday Night Fever), Caitlin O’Hearney (Wolfen) and Rutanya Alda (The Deer Hunter).
LATE PHASES tells the story of Ambrose McKinley (Damici), who moves into a community where the residents have been dying in increasing numbers – oddly, all have supposedly been the victims of dog attacks. But after barely surviving his own attack on his first night there, Ambrose discovers that the assailants are much more than canines.
