Dominic Monaghan, Orphan Black actress Ksenia Solo, iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Parsons of The Originals are starring in indie horror thriller Pet.

Carles Torrens, who directed the 2012 horror film Apartment 143, is behind the camera for the movie, which began production this week and is a co-production between Revolver Picture Company and Spanish company Magic Lantern.

Written by Jeremy Slater, the story centers on an introverted man who imprisons a woman, only to find the tables turned on him. The project is said to be tonally in the vein of Gone Girl and Hard Candy.

The project has been in the works since about 2007, when it was first set up at MGM. Monaghan has been intent on making the feature since at least 2008.

Torrens is producing alongside Revolver’s Nick Phillips and Kelly Martin Wagner. Revolver was involved in horror movies such as Haunt and Beneath.

Monaghan, repped by APA, is best known for his key roles in The Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as ABC’s Lost. He is shooting the third season of his travel show Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan, which returns to the Travel Channel January 2016.

In addition to Orphan Black, Solo appears on AMC’s Revolutionary War show Turn. She is repped by Paradigm.

McCurdy, who also appeared on Sam & Cat, is part of Netflix’s Between. She is repped by UTA and Management 360.

Parsons, whose credits include HBO’s True Blood, is repped by Innovative and Creative Partners Group.

Author: Jen | May 8, 2015 | Comments Off on CW Alum Claire Holt To Star In Thriller ’47 Meters Down’

Filed Under: | Claire Holt, News, Non TVD Projects

EXCLUSIVE: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals star Claire Holt has landed the co-lead role opposite Mandy Moore in 47 Meters Down, the Dimension Films underwater thriller that the label picked up last spring. Production is now set to start in June with Mark Lane and James Harris producing via their The Tea Shop and Film Company, the outfit behind Cockneys Vs. Zombies and Tower Block.

Moore boarded earlier this week. The two will play sisters on a dream vacation to Mexico who become trapped in a shark observation cage at the bottom of the ocean, with oxygen running low and hungry great whites circling nearby. They have less than an hour of air left to figure out how to get to the surface. Johannes Roberts is directing the pic and he co-wrote it with Ernest Riera. The picture is set to shoot in the UK and also at Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios’ new exterior water tank for the extensive underwater scenes which comprise the majority of the pic.

The Aussie-born Holt played Rebekah Mikaelson on Vampire Diaries and the spinoff Originals, and she’s ramping up her post-CW career in a big way with this as well as a role on NBC’s summer series Aquarius starring David Duchovny, which premieres May 28. She is repped by CAA, Affirmative Entertainment and Doug Stone.
