  • Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) joins The Freezer as a kidnapping victim who is more than he appears.  The story, written by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld, will be directed by Mikael Salomon.

Hit the jump for more details on each casting assignment.

natalie-dormer-the-counselorDeadline reports that Howard will star in the lead of A Girl and a Gun as Ian, a hustler with dreams of Hollywood whose career is stalling until he prevents a mugging and finds himself drawn into a mysterious world.  The LA-set film will shoot this fall.  Howard has a busy slate ahead, with On the Road, The Company You Keep, House of Bodies, Dead Man Down, Lullaby, The Butler, Breacher, Fellini Black and White scheduled, among others.

Heat Vision brings the news that Dormer is in talks to join the stellar cast of The Counselor,  which is backed by the phenomenal one-two punch of McCarthy and Scott. The original drug drama is set along the Mexican border and features a well-meaning attorney (Fassbender) who makes a deal with a rich businessman (Bardem) and a shady dealer (Pitt) to transport cocaine for some easy money.  Obviously, things don’t go as planned in the “dialogue-heavy, violent and racy script.” Dormer’s is an unspecified supporting role.

Finally, Deadline also reports that McDermott will star as Robert, a mysterious victim of an abduction who has a past as a hired killer.  The Freezer, which starts filming in Canada this fall, sports the director from Lifetime’s TV movie remake of Blue Lagoon.  McDermott can next be seen in The Campaign, and will next star in Olympus Has Fallen and Parental Guidance Suggested.
