Stephen Lang has been cast in a new thriller set up at XYZ Films titled Old Man, and he will take on the lead role. Marc Senter (Starry Eyes) is set to co-star, and the film is being helmed by Lucky McKee (The Woman) from a script by Joel Veach.
The story is set deep in the woods, and the plot follows a “lost hiker (Senter) who stumbles upon the cabin of an erratic and reclusive Old Man (Lang). What starts off as cordial conversation soon turns dangerous as it becomes clear that one or both of them might be hiding a terrifying secret.”
When talking about the script for the film, the director said, “Joel’s script is a horrific and poignant plunge into madness and Lang and Senter are going to devour it. It’s been beautiful to watch such a strong team form around us.”
The thriller is set to star showing this January in upstate New York. The film is being produced by Aaron B. Koontz for his Paper Street Pictures banner, whose western-horror The Pale Door and horror comedy Scare Package were released earlier this year.
Stephen Lang is a talented dude. He had the opportunity to play some great roles in his career, and this one is going to be another good one for him to jump into.
