Dominic Monaghan will play an 18th century gravedigger and Ron Perlman is attached to play his priest in the horror film I Sell the Dead for producer-actor Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Monaghan (“Lost,” “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) and Fessenden (Broken Flowers) will portray London corpse traders who perform services for an aristocratic doctor. Perlman (Hellboy) is in final talks to play a mysterious priest who takes confession from Monaghan’s character.
Angus Scrimm, who played the evil “Tall Man” in the Phantasm horror film series, is in final talks to play the doctor.
Production on the indie film from writer-director Glenn McQuaid will begin in May in New York.
