Andrew Divoff, Tom Savini, and Jason Carter join the cast of The Dead Matter.

Contact: sarah@midnightsyndicate.com

Midnight Syndicate Films has announced its first cast signings for the upcoming supernatural horror thriller, The Dead Matter, directed by Edward Douglas (Midnight Syndicate) and produced in coordination with Robert Kurtzman’s (KNB FX, Dusk Till Dawn) Precinct 13 Entertainment.

Andrew Divoff (Wishmaster, Air Force One), who was seen most recently as the eye-patch-wearing villain, Mikhail Bakunin, on ABC’s Lost and will be seen in the upcoming film, The Rage, will be joining the set of The Dead Matter as the character, Vellich, after completing work on a new, untitled, Steven Spielberg movie that is scheduled for release in May of 2008.

Vellich’s arch-nemesis, Ian McCallister, will be played by Jason Carter whose career spans everything from his renowned portrayal of Marcus Cole on Babylon 5 to characters on shows like Beverly Hills 90210, Angel, Charmed, Third Rock from the Sun, and in films like Demon Under Glass.

Horror-FX legend Tom Savini (Dusk Till Dawn, Dawn of the Dead), a fixture in the genre for over thirty years and seen most recently as Deputy Tolo in Grindhouse, will be portraying the devious vampire overlord, Sebed.

After wrapping production on his upcoming film, Ghouls, in April, producer Gary Jones (Xena, Army of Darkness) and producer, Edward Douglas, began pre-production for The Dead Matter. Principal photography will begin this August in Mansfield, Ohio.

The FX team at Precinct 13 has already begun work on what promises to be a visual treat for audiences. Photos and teasers will be available in the next month.

Look for more major cast AND crew announcements in the next week.

PRODUCTION WRAPS ON THE DEAD MATTER. POST-PRODUCTION UNDERWAY.



Cleveland, Ohio - Production on The Dead Matter wrapped at 5am on September 2nd. "I couldn't be happier," said Director Edward Douglas. "We got everything I was hoping for and so much more. The entire cast and crew really delivered on all levels. This movie is going to resonate with a lot of horror fans - we really have something special here."

"The Dead Matter is definitely a character-driven horror film, so a lot rides on our actors. They all really came through for us. Between the performances by our veterans and our newer faces, audiences are going to be in for a real treat," said Douglas.

Douglas credits the successful production phase to Producer Gary Jones, the FX team at Precinct 13, Director of Photography Alex Esber, UPM/AD Philip Garrett, and an "incredibly talented" crew of film veterans mixed with an enthusiastic group of hard-working production assistants. "It's an ambitious script. We were only able to complete it on time because of the tremendous talent, teamwork, and perseverance our crew exhibited."

With a projected release date in 2008, post-production on The Dead Matter has already begun. That includes work on the next Midnight Syndicate release, The Dead Matter Soundtrack due out in August of 2008. More details to follow.

Photos from the production and a video trailer for the behind the scenes feature, The Making of 'The Dead Matter' are available at the official The Dead Matter website: www.TheDeadMatter.com.
