Jones and Harden Caught in The MistGoon
The cast of Frank Darabont's adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist is slowly growing. Today Marcia Gay Harden and Toby Jones have just signed on for the film. Thomas Jane, Andre Braugher, Laurie Holden and Amin Joseph already have been cast.
The script, written by Darabont, is set after a strange storm blows through a Maine town and its citizens are attacked by deadly creatures. A group of townfolks barricade themselves in a supermarket and struggle for survival.
Harden will play Mrs. Carmody, an outspoken and ultimately divisive member of the trapped group; Jones will play Ollie, a mild-mannered supermarket manager who is forced to take heroic measures to save his life and the lives of others.
Right now this sounds like a weird combination of Night of the Living Dead and Intruder. Well hopefully we will be getting a teaser of some kind soon. Apparently filming is going to begin sometime this week in Louisiana.
