Casting Firms Up for Chad Ferrin’s Horror Western Horse

Posted by Debi Moore on March 16, 2016

horse1We’re big fans of the horror western here at Dread Central so when we got word that Chad Ferrin’s Horse, a project that’s been in the works for a few years now, is getting under way with some casting news, of course we had to share it!

Henry Ian Cusick (pictured below; “The 100,” “Lost”) and Jansen Panettiere (Eden Falls, Summer Forever) have both joined the cast of Horse, which is written and directed by Ferrin. While Ferrin’s background (which includes such films as The Chair, Somebody’s Knocking at the Door, and Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill!) is certainly horror-centric, this new film should fit in as it’s being described as “Django Unchained on steriods” with promises of it being “gross and twisted.” Sounds up our alley, right?

In any event, keep an eye on the Horse Facebook page, and stay tuned for updates as production should be kicking off soon.

Horse is an homage to Boetticher, Peckinpah, Ford, Hawkes, Fuller, and Leone. It is vengeance/siege/chase/masculinity/morality packed into one hell of an action-driven western.

In the Old West, a man relies on two things to survive – his gun and his horse. And Luther Cobb just lost one of those, his beloved horse, Bud. Cobb is a man of true grit, having fought in the Civil War and skirmishes in the American Indian Wars. He has seen plenty of bloodshed and is now on the trail of those responsible for killing his friend.

The CW Continues Casting for The Tomorrow People and The Hundred Pilots

Posted by Uncle Creepy on February 22, 2013

The CW Continues Casting for The Tomorrow People and The Hundred PilotsHorror on television has never been more popular, and if anyone knows this to be a complete and total fact, it's The CW. Speaking of which, some quick casting news has come in for two of the network's new pilots: "The Tomorrow People" and "The Hundred."

Deadline reports that "Supernatural" alum Mark Pellegrino will co-star in "The Tomorrow People." Written/exec produced by Phil Klemmer based on the cult British series, exec produced by Julie Plec and Greg Berlanti, and directed/exec produced by Danny Cannon, "The Tomorrow People" is about several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution and work together to defeat the forces of evil. Pellegrino will play Dr. Jedikiah Price, an evolutionary biologist committed to containing the threat posed by the “Tomorrow People,” whom he believes to be a grave danger to the human race.

The site also goes on to report that "Lost" alum Henry Ian Cusick has joined The CW pilot "The Hundred." Based on the Alloy books by Kass Morgan, the Warner Bros. TV-produced "The Hundred" is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization when the space station housing human survivors called the Ark sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet. Cusick will play Kane, an ambitious officer aboard the Ark who has his sights set on the Chancellor’s job.

Look for more on both shows soon.
