We've been keeping a close eye on the Jason Krawczyk-helmed HE NEVER DIED, and now that the film is officially underway we now have our hands on the first look at Henry Rollins' character in the film. Rollins, who also serves as an Executive Producer on the project, stars as Jack, a mysterious loner who has lived an inexplicably long life fueled by blood lust and filled with crime and violence.
Details were pretty slim on this one at first, but now we've got an official synopsis that reveals just how dark HE NEVER DIED is, and worth noting is the fact that Rollins' character is a cannibal—sold!
HE NEVER DIED follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life - he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack's past comes back to rattle him. Jake must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can't die.
Rollins is joined on screen by the TWILIGHT franchise star Boo Boo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Kate Greenhouse (The Dark Hours), Jordan Todosey (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and Steven Ogg.
