Giant wasp horror comedy ‘Stung’ announces cast




A year ago we brought you the first teaser for director Benni Diez’s upcoming horror comedy, Stung, and then in November we told you that eOne had nabbed UK distribution rights to the film. Now, finally, the films primary cast has been revealed, and you can find out all the info in the following press release, and the teaser for the film is included at the bottom as a reminder.

The Press Release:

Rat Pack Filmproduction and XYZ Films have announced today that Matt O’Leary (BRICK, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD), Jessica Cook (MISTRESSES, MTV’s “AWKWARD”), Peter Stormare (PAIN AND GAIN, HANSEL AND GRETEL), and Lance Henriksen (THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS) have been added to the cast of the horror comedy STUNG. The film, to be directed by Benni Diez (KINGZ), is produced by Christian Becker and Benjamin Munz from Rat Pack Filmproduction (THE WAVE, WE ARE THE NIGHT) and executive produced by XYZ Films (THE RAID: REDEMPTION). The film is currently set to start shooting in Berlin on October 22, 2013, and has been sold in multiple territories, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, and Scandinavia to independent distributor eOne.

In STUNG a fancy garden party goes terribly wrong after a local species of wasps mutates into giant predators. It’s up to Paul and Julia, two catering staffers at the high society event, to stop the killer creatures – an effort that kick-starts a budding romance between the two.

STUNG was developed by producer Benjamin Munz at Rat Pack Filmproduction (Munich & Berlin) based on an idea by Adam Aresty, who won RatPack’s 2012 horror-writing contest “Write for Your life.“

“STUNG, to me, is bringing the creature feature cult film feeling from the 80s into the present and a modern day fun-horror movie” says director Benni Diez.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
