After Dark Films has begun casting for "Husk," a horror feature scripted by Brett Simmons that is based on his short film which played at the Sundance Film Festival.
CJ Thomason, who recently appeared in "Harper's Island," will star with Devon Graye ("Dexter"), Wes Chatham ("The Unit," "W") and Tammin Sursok ("Aquamarine").
The film follows five friends on a weekend trip who are stranded in a isolated rural community when crows attack. It's not long before they discover the cornfields are infested with reanimated human scarecrows. The creatures reproduce by killing their victims and transforming the corpses into the undead.
Thomason plays a blue-collar guy, Graye is the brains behind the group and Chatham is the jock.
Courtney Solomon, Stephanie Caleb, Limor Diamant and Moshe Diamant are producing for After Dark Films.
Simmons will direct "Husk," which has secured a distribution deal with Lionsgate. It will lens in Iowa.
