EXCLUSIVE: As StarTree Productions’ upcoming vampire thriller Corbin Nash prepares to begin shooting, the cast has been filled out by genre film royalty, with Malcolm McDowell, Rutger Hauer, Bruce Davison and Corey Feldman signing on. The film sees Dean Jagger (Game of Thrones season 6) as the title character, a New York City cop who transfers to Los Angeles to hunt for his parents’ killer. Once there, he’s brutally murdered and returns to life as the ultimate killer. Bloodshed ensues.
While most plot details remain under wraps, McDowell has signed on to play a character known as the Blind Prophet who exists around the margins of the film’s world. Hauer, meanwhile, will play a character described as a mysterious stranger, while Davison plays Jack, the title character’s conflicted stepfather who hides a dangerous secret. And Corey Feldman will play a vicious, cross-dressing vampire in a role that could serve as a comeback for the Lost Boys and Stand By Me star. Rounding out the cast is Mexican actress Fernanda Romero (The Eye, Eternamente tuya) as Macy, a financially struggling woman who searches for her kidnapped younger brother in a world of lost souls, with Richard Wagner as Vince, the lover and minder of Feldman’s character.
