Stephen Dorff has joined Jackals, Tommy Alastra Productions announced Tuesday.

Directed by Kevin Greutert (Saw VI, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter), the '80s-set psychological thriller centers on an estranged family who hire a cult de-programmer (Dorff) to get back their teenage son from a murderous cult, but find themselves under siege when the cultists surround their cabin, demanding the boy back.

Johnathon Schaech, Deborah Kara Unger, Ben Sullivan, Chelsea Ricketts and Nick Roux also star in the film, which recently wrapped production. Jared Rivet penned the script.

Besides Jackals, Alastra is gearing up to produce next year's Zelda Fitzgerald film The Beautiful and the Damned, starring Scarlett Johansson.
