Envision Media Arts (EMA) announced today that Dylan McDermott ("American Horror Story") will star in Freezer, an action thriller shooting this month in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Mikael Salomon will direct from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld. Lee Nelson and David Buelow will produce for Envision Media.
The film is described as follows: Robert (McDermott), an everyday guy, finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs. They insist he returns the $8 million dollars he stole from them, the only problem is, Robert has no idea what they are talking about…. As he fights for his life before freezing to death, the truth slowly reveals itself.
Producer Lee Nelson stated, "We are excited that Dylan McDermott and Mikael Salomon have come together on this project. Their collaboration will combine Dylan's intensity as an actor with Salomon’s powerful direction to capture an edge of your seat fight for life."
