He took on demons in “Supernatural,” battled bloodsuckers in “The Vampire Diaries,” and now, Sebastian Roché takes a stab at fighting werewolves in his latest project.
The Playlist has learned exclusively that “The Adventures of Tintin” star has joined the cast of “Wer,” the next effort from “The Devil Inside” director William Brent Bell. The story follows defense attorney Kate Moore (“Criminal Minds” star A.J. Cook) who is looking to clear her client, Talan Gwynek (Brian J. O’Connor), who is a suspect in a grisly multiple slaying of a vacationing American family. However, Talan may be much more than meets the eye. As for Roché, he will be playing Detective Pistor, a French ex-military type investigating the case.
“It’s going to be more of a faux documentary approach, with some found footage. It’s going to be very different than ‘Devil Inside,’ but still portray itself as a documentary and delve into a subject and give it some side to it that you’ve never seen before,” Bell told us about the project earlier in the year, adding that compared to his previous film, “It’s going to be a lot more frightening in a visceral way.”
Definitely lots to look forward to for horror fans. Production on “Wer” is now underway in Romania.
