Ginger Nuts of Horror
Tomas Boykin (Lazarus Rising, I Am) has been cast as Father Alexander, the priest that comes to read Richard Sullivan (played by Brian Thompson) his last rites.
Casting announcements for Mr. Bates, Johnny the Janitor, and the Commanding Officer will be announced before the May 15th start date of the film's Kickstarter fundraiser. Producer Peter Simeti informs us that all three roles will be filled by some well-known faces (and voices), adding further to the fan-favorite cast.
A talented production crew is also being added, featuring Stunt Coordinator Paul Lacovara (Avengers, Godzilla, Thor) , Production Designer Tim Eckel (CSI, Veronica Mars, Hellraiser 3), Key Grip Anthony Ragonese (Dead Man's Curve, Desperate Housewives) , Hair Stylist Lisa Meyers (Gangster Squad, Without a Trace, Freaks and Geeks) , and iconic horror film composer Charles Bernstein (Nightmare on Elm Street, White Lightning, Cujo) .
THE CHAIR follows the story of Richard Sullivan (Brian Thompson), an innocent man struggling to escape execution on death row. Witnessing the torture and murder of his fellow inmates at the hands of the prison's sadistic and psychotic Warden (Bill Oberst Jr.), Sullivan decides that the only way to survive is to fight back. But as he matches the savagery and brutality occurring in the prison, Sullivan is forced to come face to face with his own sanity.
