Cast is consumed by 'Maneater'
Dean Cain, Conrad Janis among actors joining thrillerMichael Emanuel has ordered up his human buffet.
The actor-producer has cast Dean Cain, Conrad Janis ("The Cable Guy"), Stephen Lunsford ("Bratz"), Walter Phelan ("House of 1000 Corpses"), Maximillian Roeg ("7th Heaven") and Lacy Phillips ("Pushing Twilight") in his directorial debut, "Maneater."
Emanuel's Canal Street Films is producing, and Eric Lewald ("Trollz") is executive producing.
The horror thriller about a former FBI profiler and small-town sheriff investigating mysterious murders is derived from a Native American legend. Emanuel, repped by AKA, also wrote the screenplay with John K. Anderson.
"Maneater" is the second in a slate of 10 movies that Canal Street is producing with independent financing; the first was "The Uninvited," which is seeking a distributor.
