Adapted written, directed by DiBlasi
Jackson Rathbone has been cast in Clive Barker’s Dread, an adaptation written and directed by Anthony DiBlasi. Rathbone – who plays Jasper in the Twilight film – will play a leading role.
Update: Rathbone has been cast as Stephen Grace.
A co-production of Matador and Essential Entertainment, the story tells of Quaid, a student of philosophy, who is obsessed by his own nightmare of an ax-murdering clown so he concocts a series of experiments to observe firsthand how other people react to the things that most horrify them. But while Quaid slowly unpeels the psyches of his imprisoned and tortured captives like a reeking onion, his own dread waits, just beyond his control.
Principal photography begins this October
