The only thing standing between evil and the locals is a sheriff and his deputy.
Also in the cast are Sabina Gadecki (Freaky Deaky), Heath Freeman (Skateland) and Nick Damici (Stake Land).
Heller is producing with Caliber partner Dallas Sonnier and Stefan Nowicki of Sundial.
Exec producing are Kevin Iwashina and Ross Dinerstein of Prefered Content and Joey Carey of Sundial. Hisel and manager Alexander Robb also are executive producers
Visual effects company The Molecule is handling the movies’ visual effects, and the company’s Ted Markovic also is exec producing.
Preferred Content is selling the film domestically.
Durand, who played a bad guy on Lost and was last seen in DreamWorks’ Real Steel, is repped by WME, Alchemy Entertainment and attorney Dave Feldman.
Haas, who appeared in Christopher Nolan’s Inception, is repped by Innovative, managers Chuck Pacheco and Rick Yorn and attorneys PJ Shapiro and Julian Zajfen.
