The indie production company DeInstitutionalized has announced the cast for its horror movie “Minutes to Midnight,” which will be led by William Baldwin (“Gossip Girl”), Bill Moseley (“The Devil’s Rejects”), Richard Grieco (“21 Jump Street”), Dominique Swain (“Face/Off”), Viva Bianca (“Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) and Christopher Judge (“Stargate SG-1”).
Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray will direct from a script written by Christopher Don and Victoria Dadi. The director is also producing the film with his DeInstitutionalized partner Gerald Webb as well as Paul Sinor and Collen Sinor of Possum on the Half Shell Productions. Gene Valentino and Maureen Valentino of ForeverMaur Films will serve as executive producers.
Set around New Year’s Eve, “Minutes to Midnight” chronicles what happens when a night of fun turns into a night of horror.
The director’s previous films “A House Is Not a Home” and “Mercenaries,” have won several awards from genre press, while producer Webb is the casting executive behind the hit “Sharknado” franchise.
“We are beyond excited to be filming ‘Minutes to Midnight’ with this outstanding cast for genre cinema,” said Webb. “William Baldwin definitely is embracing the challenge of this out of the ordinary role and will been seen like never before. Richard Grieco brings depth and emotional maelstrom to the role of ‘Sheriff Wyatt,’ while Christopher Judge delivers his expected gravitas as only he can. And it was only fitting that we have a horror genre icon, Bill Mosley, serve to anchor the terror of the film.”
