There's been a lot of news coming out of Berlin this week as the European Film Market is in full swing and that means a lot of film sales, announcements of upcoming projects and exciting casting news. The latest out of Berlin is that STAKE LAND star Nick Damici has just signed on for the lead role in Adrian Garcia Bogliano's LATE PHASES. You can check out our last story on the film HERE.
LATE PHASES will tell the story of Ambrose McKinley, who moves into a community where the residents have been dying in increasing numbers - oddly, all have supposedly been the victims of dog attacks. But after barely surviving his own attack on his first night there, Ambrose discovers that the assailants are much more than canines.
MPI's Dark Sky, who is co-producing LATE PHASES with Zak Zeman's Site B Productions, has also announced that they will bring on Glass Eye Pix. Previous Dark Sky and Glass Eye collaborations include successful genre films such as THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, STAKE LAND, THE INNKEEPERS and others. Zak Zeman comes in fresh off the heels of his Sundance success with S-VHS.
Nick Damici was recently seen in the Jospeh Gordon-Levitt action flick PREMIUM RUSH and will next be seen in WE ARE WHAT WE ARE. As for his role in LATE PHASES MPI Executive Vice President Greg Newman had this to say,
"Nick Damici was a key factor in the success of STAKE LAND and he'll bring that same unforgettable presence to this new film."
With shooting set to begin this spring we are sure to hear more casting announcements on LATE PHASES and we're excited to see what Bogliano will deliver with this new genre piece.
Damici was a badass in STAKE LAND. Can't wait to see what he does in LATE PHASES.
