'Flowers in the Attic' Sequel: 'Orphan Black' Star to Reprise Role
Dylan Bruce, who played Corrine's husband in the Jan. 18 telepic, is back for "Petals on the Wind."
Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic sequel has locked up another original star.
Dylan Bruce, who co-starred as Corrine Dollanganger's husband Bart Winslow in the telepic that aired Jan. 18, has closed a deal to return for the Petals on the Wind followup, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
He joins returning stars Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn, who played Corrine and Olivia Foxworth in Flowers in the Attic. Mason Dye, who played Christopher, will not return, while Once Upon a Time actress Rose McIver takes over the role of Cathy from Kiernan Shipka.
Karen Moncrieff will direct the film, which will be executive produced by Michele Weiss and Merideth Finn, with Rob Sharenow, Tanya Lopez and Lisa Hamilton-Daly for Lifetime. Richard Arredondo and Kyle Clark produce.
Though V.C. Andrews' 1980 novel Petals on the Wind picks up immediately following the events of Flowers in the Attic, Lifetime's adaptation takes place about 10 years later. Set in 1971, Petals on the Wind follows the lives of the Dollanganger siblings, now young adults, trying to shake off the legacy of their mother's abuse. Their efforts are marred by lingering guilt and present tragedy. Dogged by disaster, Cathy (McIver) ultimately concocts a scheme to avenge herself on her mother.
At the winter Television Critics Association press tour in January, screenwriter Kayla Alpert called Petals on the Wind "a very juicy, compelling revenge drama."
Bruce is repped by Resolution, Canada's Pacific Artists Management and manager Michael Bruno. He is best known as Paul in BBC America's Orphan Black and recurs on The CW's Arrow.
