BEOWULF & MINOTAUR ACTORS
Variety reports that Stellan (EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING) Skarsg? and Sarah (DAWN OF THE DEAD) Polley have joined Gerard Butler in the cast of BEOWULF AND GRENDEL, the cinematic retelling of the monster-fighter legend that is currently shooting in Iceland. Sturla Gunnarsson is directing from a script by Andrew Rai (BLOOD & DONUTS) Berzins. Another historical creature feature, MINOTAUR, has added HELLBOY?s Rupert Evans to the cast, in the role originally to be filled by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. MINOTAUR takes a youth-horror approach to the Greek myth, with Tony Todd and Steven Berkoff also starring in the eventual Lions Gate release. Finally, Bill (SHAUN OF THE DEAD) Nighy will rejoin Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman in UNDERWORLD II, due to start lensing this fall.
