Scott Spiegel’s straight-to-DVD sequel has added a quartet of potential victims to its cast.
"Nip/Tuck" star John Hensley, comedian Skyler Stone, "True Blood" actor Chris Coy and German sensation Thomas Kretschmann have joined the cast of "Hostel 3," an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
The story concerns a Vegas bachelor party that turns grisly when the groom (Hallisay) learns that his longtime best friend (Pardue) has targeted him for ritual murder.
Scott Spiegel ("From Dusk Till Dawn 2") will direct from a script he co-wrote with John Fasano, while Chris Briggs and Mike Fleiss will produce with Eli Roth, who told Shock Till You Drop last year that he wouldn't be involved in the straight-to-DVD project.
"Hostel 3" will be released through Sony's Stage 6, a company that specializes in low-budget prequels and sequels to established properties such as "Starship Troopers" and "Wild Things."
Hensley is best known for playing Dylan Walsh's son in the aforementioned FX series. On the feature side, he has co-starred in "Teeth," "Shutter" and "Fifty Pills."
Stone is a well known comic who has previously been seen on the big screen in "Van Wilder," "The Rules of Attraction," "Stuck on You," "The Island," "Accepted," "For Your Consideration" and "Waiting…" He recently appeared on CBS' "The Mentalist" and "Rules of Engagement," as well as ABC's "Lost," and next stars in Greg Garcia's sitcom "Raising Hope," which debuts Sept. 21 on Fox.
Coy has several TV credits under his belt. He recently appeared in Noah Baumbach's "Greenberg," and just wrapped Elgin James' indie drama "Little Birds."
Kretschmann is best known to American ads for playing Capt. Englehorn in Peter Jackson's "King Kong." He's also appeared in "Valkyrie," "Wanted," "Transsiberian," "Downfall," "The Pianist," "Blade II," "U-571" and on Fox's "24."
Hensley is represented by ICM and Vincent Cirrincione & Associates, Stone by Rebel Entertainment Partners and Justice & Ponder, while Coy is represented by TalentWorks and Main Title Entertainment and Krestchmann by Paradigm.
