It’s not often that a two-time Oscar nominee stars in a horror film. But according to Deadline, the prolific Bruce Dern is doing exactly that. Dern will be starring in Hellblazers, a production that recently wrapped in California with very little details yet to be released. Below is the first shot featuring Dern (The Haunting, The ‘Burbs) in the action-horror film.
Hellblazers, directed by Justin Lee, has a very interesting concept that sounds like it could be a lot of bloody fun. Deadline describes it like this: “The story, set in the late 1980s, follows a satanic cult that has singular focus of unleashing hell on Earth. With the help of an ancient incantation, they conjure a demon, and its members are tasked with feeding it the populous of a nearby small southwestern town.” Basically, they had me at “satanic cult”, “demon” and “1980s.”
