When is a game far more–and far worse–than a game?
Genre icon Tony Todd stars in the new horror mystery Werewolf Game, which expanded its cast this week, according to a report on Deadline.
Joining the Candyman star are Lydia Hearst (Z Nation), Bai Ling (Red Corner), Teala Dunn (Are We There Yet?) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager). The new film will start shooting this spring in Los Angeles.
Werewolf Game–directed by Jackie Payne (who also wrote the script) and Cara Brennan–is based on a “party game of social deduction” created by Dimitry Davidoff back in 1986. The movie follows 12 strangers “who are kidnapped by a social media company and forced to play a game where they vote on who among them should be murdered,” according to the logline.
Todd explained his attraction to the project by saying his roots as an actor “are grounded in theater, which is why my character in Werewolf Game strongly appeals to me–much like my part in Immortal.”
The directors said they are introducing a new villain for Todd’s character in this “genre-bending thriller by drawing on the raw intensity of anime and the chilling atmosphere of retro horror.”
