Michael Paré takes the leading role in The Arrow aka John Fallon's The Shelter

03.27.2013

Some very cool news from our brother in horror, The Arrow AKA John Fallon has landed a leading actor in his upcoming full length director debut THE SHELTER (like its Facebook Page here). Michael Paré (EDDIE AND THE CRUISERS, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES, THE LINCOLN LAWYER) has signed on to play the role of Thomas.

Fallon said this about casting:

“For my debut, I am trying to surround myself with people that I know and trust. And the same M.O. went for the lead role of Thomas. I needed an actor that I knew as a person on some level, had the chops to do the role justice and who would be an ally on set. Michael Paré was the first name on my list; in fact, I had him in mind when I wrote the script. He’s my kind of guy; straightforward, committed, intelligent and humble. He is also very talented. Elated to have him on-board!”

Very cool, right? Paré will also serve as executive producer on the project. Not only that, but the actor actually had some rather nice words to say about the heart of the script:

I read John Fallon's script "The Shelter” and it tells a great and painful tragedy. Not about global disaster or war or economic collapse but of the individual human heart. The human heart and soul is what all art seeks to unravel. Guilt, regret and shame kill the heart and soul. When our lower animal nature dominates our character our soul is lost.

Here's the synopsis: On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Pare) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. Inside, with nobody in sight, he finds all of the comforts that he used to have. After taking a bath, feasting wholeheartedly on some food and relishing the silliness on the tube, he gets some well-earned shut eye. All is well until a restless Thomas wakes up in a panic and finds a loaded revolver resting on his lap. Baffled, he picks up the weapon, checks the barrel and notes that it is fully loaded. A visceral sense of unease invades him immediately. Something is very wrong and he decides that it is time to leave. Alas he finds out swiftly that the premises won’t let him depart so quickly. The doors are all locked, and the windows puzzlingly cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. Will he survive the ordeal?

Production on THE SHELTER begins January 2014. Expect a crowd funding campaign to hit the web.

Way to go, John! We at JoBlo.com are tremendously proud of you! Also, check out the poster for the film below made by our own awesome, Paul Shirey.

Just kidding, John! Being a fellow artist, I know support is a hugely important part of the process. Lord knows It's hard enough to create stories without it. So I'm throwing all of mine your way. Best of luck! Cheers, bro.

Although we mostly see Pare in his spirit form in "100 Feet", he was a Dynamite! Now I'm looking forward to The Shelter. Go Arrow!
