writer-director Bryan Bertino
's new nightmare The Dark & the Wicked has just snagged it's cast in the form of Marin Ireland
(The Miseducation of Cameron Post
), Michael Abbott Jr.
(The Death of Dick Long
), and Xander Berkeley
(The Walking Dead
). Bertino's new film follows the tale of terror centering on two siblings who are summoned back to the family farm to await the inevitability of their father's death, and what initially appears to be a timeless ritual of loss and remembrance turns out to be something very different.
While this has not been confirmed, I can only imagine that Ireland and Abbott Jr. will be playing the siblings mentioned above while Berkeley will be portraying the family patriarch at the end of his life. But again, this has not been confirmed at this time.
One of the main reasons I'm excited about today's news is the inclusion of actor Xander Berkeley.
