Casting News and First Still from Adam Steigert’s A Grim Becoming

Posted by The Woman In Black on February 15, 2013

A boatload of casting news and an early still have arrived for DefTone Pictures Studios' upcoming horror-comedy A Grim Becoming. Check out the details, which include some names that will be very familiar to horror fans.

From the Press Release:
DefTone Pictures Studios, Inc., continues to put Buffalo, New York, on the map with its film productions. Currently in pre-production is the company's next feature film, a horror-comedy entitled A Grim Becoming, directed by Adam R. Steigert (Ombis 2013) and written by Janeen Avery, Christopher Brechtel, Mark Mendola, and Steigert.

Newcomer Christopher Marriott (B.Y.O.D.) is in talks with DefTone to play the lead role of Raphael. Raphael is a young, bitter executive who is on the verge of losing a multimillion dollar architectural deal with a large distribution company lead by the awkward Stanford brothers. Raphael suffers a sudden death in his family and has to immediately leave to go to the funeral in his home town of Metzburgh. Seeing this as his big chance to get ahead is Wayne, a jealous co-worker who is in competition with Raphael. Wayne is being played by Syfy's "Ghost Hunters" and The Black Dahlia Haunting’s (2012) Britt Griffith.

As Raphael returns to Metzburgh, he experiences a life changing event: witnessing a Grim Reaper taking a soul. This sighting results in Raphael becoming a Reaper and having to explore his own conscience and the lengths he will go to get his own life back. But Death, played by Michael Sciabarrasi (Ombis, Black Guy on a Rampage: Homicidal Vengeance), has other plans for the naive young executive.
