Del Toro Casts ‘Breaking Bad’ Alum Norris in ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’

Looks like Guillermo del Toro will be dipping into the Breaking Bad talent pool for his latest project.  Del Toro has reportedly cast Dean Norris, who played Walter White’s brother-in-law (and main antagonist) Hank on the hit AMC show, for his upcoming film Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.  Somewhere Jesse Pinkman is smiling.

Norris is the latest, and most well-known, addition to the film’s cast.  Since Breaking Bad ended its wildly successful run, Norris has gone on to appear in big-budget films such as Fist Fight (2017) and the Death Wish remake (2018).  Joining him in yet-unknown roles are Zoe Margaret Colletti (Annie) and Michael Garza (Wayward Pines) among others.  Spanish actor Javier Botet, who played significant roles in horror genre hits like Slender Man, The Conjuring 2, and IT, will also join the cast in some on-screen capacity.  André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe) is attached to direct. read more

Based on the new trailer for his remake of Death Wish, it looks like we may be seeing a mix of classic Eli Roth and modern Eli Roth in this upcoming motion picture. read more
