Orlando Jones ("American Gods", Evolution) has joined Lexicon’s horror movie Dark Forces with Anthony O’Brien (“The Timber”) directing, Variety reports.
We're intrigued by the sound of this one already:
“Jones will portray a monster movie director who becomes haunted by creatures from his own films while recovering from brain surgery.”
“Orlando’s multi-talented and intellectually stimulating performances speak for themselves; his turn as ‘Mr. Nancy’ on Starz ‘American Gods’ provides a perfect example of this,” O’Brien said. “His contribution to ‘Dark Forces’ will allow the audience to experience a thoughtful energy and voice that old (and new) fans of the genre can embrace.”
O’Brien will direct from a screenplay by Lexicon producers Mark Mathias Sayre and Justin Foia. Production is expected to take place this summer in Romania.
