‘Saw II’ and ‘Mother’s Day’ helmer Darren Lynn Bousman may be getting very excited about the impending release of his new horror ’11-11-11′ but it seems he’s also very busy in pre-production on his next horror feature ‘The Barrens’. The new flick based around legendary creature the Jersey Devil will star ‘True Blood’s Stephen Moyer, Allie MacDonald, Max Topplin and Peter DaCunha. But the casting doesn’t stop there. According to those decent horror folks over at Bloody Disgusting word is that a new trio of actors are set to star. Mia Kirshner (below), J. Larose and Erik Knudsen (‘Scream 4’) are all set to join the cast with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Kirshner set to play Moyer’s wife. The shoot kicks off in Toronto next week.
“In the film Cynthia Marlow (Kirshner) joins her husband Richard (Moyer), stepdaughter Sadie, and young son for a weekend camping trip in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Family bonding turns to horror when Richard falls ill and becomes convinced they are being stalked by the legendary creature of the Barrens: the Jersey Devil.”
