Carrie-Anne Moss, Kevin Zegers, Callum Keith Rennie and Cameron Bright are starring in Carl Bessai’s Normal, a drama about the impact of a deadly traffic crash. Rennie also has joined the cast of SCI FI Channel’s upcoming miniseries “Tin Man,” a new take on L. Frank Baum’s classic novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” from RHI Entertainment.
In Normal, Moss plays Catherine, a mother filled with rage and unable to recover from the death of her teenage son in a car crash. Rennie plays Walt, a literature professor trying to overcome his guilt from the accidental killing. Zegers plays a young thief involved in a taboo love affair with his stepmother whose life becomes intertwined with the other characters. Bright plays Catherine’s 12-year-old son, Brady. The film has begun principal photography.
In the six-hour “Tin Man,” Rennie (“Battlestar Galactica”) will play Zero, the lead henchman for the wicked sorceress Azkadellia (Kathleen Robertson), who lives in the Outer Zone, a wondrous world oppressed by dark magic. Also starring in the mini, premiering in December, are Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cumming, Richard Dreyfuss, Neal McDonough and Raoul Trujillo.
