The body horror comedy THE MASTER CLEANSE has found a few new campers… and lost one. Anna Friel (THE LAND OF THE LOST; pictured above) and Oliver Platt ("Fargo") have jumped aboard the Bobby Miller-dreicted film, which has been described as a cross between David Cronenberg and an Amblin movie - and that sounds kind of amazing.
Friel replaces Chloe Sevigny, who was announced two months ago, along with Johnny Galecki and Anjelica Huston. Sevigny evidently had a scheduling conflict.
Here's how the plot shakes out:
After holding onto heartbreak for several years, Paul (Galecki) decides to restart his life, joining a spiritual retreat designed to cleanse negative toxins from his body. But things take a turn when Paul and the other participants discover that the cleanse releases something far greater than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences.
MASTERSFX (ELYSIUM, ROBOCOP) will supply creatures and visual effects for the film.
