Horror duo The Butcher Brothers have cast their upcoming film The Beginners Guide to Snuff, setting Joey Kern (Workaholics), Luke Edwards (The Wizard), Bree Williamson (True Detective) and Brad Greenquist (Water for Elephants) to star.

The story centers on two actor brothers (Kern and Edwards) who are trying to make it in Hollywood, and decide to make a pretend snuff film to get ahead. In hopes of making it more realistic, they kidnap an actress (Williamson) so they can capture her terror on film. But they soon discover they have messed with the wrong woman. Greenquist will play the head of security at a theme park who has a dark edge to his work.
