Here are some of the latest casting additions:

  • Patrick Stewart (X-Men), Carla Gugino (Night at the Museum) and Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) will star in director Stephen Belber’s Match, a drama centering on an eccentric Julliard grad and a young couple who wish to interview him.
  • Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) will star in the action-thriller Freezer, directed by Mikael Salomon (Hard Rain).  The picture finds McDermott’s character locked in a freezer by Russian thugs who demand he return their missing money, which he has no knowledge of.

MATCH is based on Belber’s 2004 Tony nominated Broadway play of the same title.  The film centers on a reclusive, eccentric Julliard dance instructor and a former choreographer, Tobi (Stewart), who is visited by a Seattle couple, Lisa and Mike (Gugino and Lillard) under the pretense of interviewing Tobi for Lisa’s thesis on the New York dance movement in the sixties.  However, as the couple’s true intentions are revealed, Tobi is forced to face the impact of decisions he made long ago.

Production is currently underway in New York.  Stewart will next be seen reprising his role as Professor Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Here’s the synopsis for Freezer:

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.

McDermott can currently be seen starring in the second season of FX’s American Horror Story and will next be seen on screen in Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen.  Another upcoming project of his is director Tim Garrick’s Behaving Badly, starring Selena Gomez.  Also, here’s a fun behind-the-scenes photo from McDermott’s Twitter account (via Dylan McDermott on WhoSay):
