Diggs, Briem are 'Dead' on
EmptyTaye Diggs and Anita Briem have joined the cast of the Hyde Park-Platinum Studios horror film "Dead of Night," currently filming in New Orleans. Stunt coordinator Eric Norris ("Righteous Kill") also has come on board to handle the stunt choreography.
The actors join Brandon Routh and Sam Huntington in the supernatural thriller directed by Kevin Munroe ("TMNT"). Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly ("Sahara") penned the "Men in Black"-style vampire-werewolf-zombie film, which they adapted from the best- selling 1986 Italian comic series "Dylan Dog."
Diggs will play Vargas, the head of a vampire family, and Briem is Elizabeth, one of Dylan Dog's (Routh's) potential romantic conquests.
Platinum's Scott Mitchell Rosenberg and Hyde Park's Ashok Amritraj are producing the $20 million indie along with Gilbert Adler ("Valkyrie"); co-financer Omnilab Media Group ("The Messenger") is presenting the film.
Diggs is repped by ICM and A Management Company; Briem is repped by UTA and Untitled.
