Horror flick "Husk" cast revealed

By Sari N. Kent,
Husk, a new horror motion picture from After Dark Films, has cast Devon Graye, of Showtime's "Dexter," CJ Thomason, who was featured on the David E. Kelley Fox television series "Boston Public" and Wes Chatham, who starred in 2007's "In the Valley of Elah" and 2008's "W."

The After Dark Films horror movie, entitled "Husk," will star Devon Graye, who plays the young embodiment of the main character on Showtime's acclaimed crime/mystery television series, "Dexter," along with CJ Thomason, who starred on the CBS thriller television series, "Harper's Island," and Wes Chatham, who was featured on the CBS action/drama television series, "The Unit."

According to an article on HollywoodReporter.com, "The story sees five friends on a weekend trip who become stranded in isolated farmland when crows attack their SUV. They soon realize that the cornfields are inhabited by reanimated human scarecrows who reproduce by killing and force their undead victims to join their ranks."

Brett Simmons wrote the script and will be directing the film, which is based on Simmons's short story that was shown at the Sundance Film Festival.

Graye portrays the smart one in the bunch while Thomason plays the down-to-earth, blue-collar guy and Chatham plays the jock. The movie also features Tammin Sursok, who plays Colleen Carlton on the CBS daytime drama, "The Young & the Restless," and was in 2006's "Aquamarine" opposite pop singer Joanna Levesque, aka JoJo.

"Husk" will be shooting in Iowa with Courtney Solomon, Stephanie Caleb, Moshe Diamant and Limor Diamant producing for After Dark, which has a distribution deal with Lionsgate.
