Melonie Diaz has joined the cast of The Belko Experiment, the MGM action horror pic written and produced by Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn. Production kicks off next month in Bogota with director Greg McLean. Diaz will play Dany Wilkins, the new girl at Belko Corporation. It’s her first day working in the building, and she really couldn’t have chosen a worst first day, since this is the day the employees are forced to either kill each one another or be killed. Diaz starred in 2014 Sundance hit Fruitvale Station, and her recent credits also include HBO’s Girls and the features X/Y and The Cobbler. She is repped by Gersh, Thruline Entertainment and Morris Yorn.
Sam Hazeldine has booked a role in Universal’s The Huntsman for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron star in the Frank Darabont-penned follow-up to the 2012 film Snow White And The Huntsman. Hazeldine was a regular on the recently canceled ABC drama Resurrection, and other recent credits include the UK’s Peaky Blinders, the features ’71 and The Monuments Men and CBS’ The Dovekeepers miniseries. He is repped by Greene & Associates and Curtis Brown Talent Group.
