Jamie Hill (“Two and a Half Men”), Carter Jenkins (“The Following”), Chris Hayes (“Divergent”), Liv von Oelreich (“Masters of Sex”) and “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent Carly Steel are set to star in the indie thriller “Headgame,” TheWrap has learned.

Native American filmmaker and visual artist Steven Paul Judd (“Death Factory”) will direct from a script by Roberto Marinas.

“Headgame” stars Hill as a sweet yoga instructor who, after a first date with a mysterious man, wakes up in an abandoned warehouse with seven other strangers who have been forced into a deadly game for the amusement of a twisted secret society.

Hayes plays the slick designer of the game, while Marina Orlova, who’s a well-known actress overseas, co-stars as one of the secret society’s members who bets on the ill-fated contestants.

“Headgame” is the first feature from Sunday Funday Films, which is producing with Second Nature Films. Sunday Funday’s Hayes, Marinas, Jeff Stearns and Marion Brooks will produce alongside horror veterans Stephen Durham and David Dittlinger of Second Nature Films.

Judd’s last film, “The Butchers,” received international distribution and had a limited theatrical run, while Marinas is an award-winning writer who was a recipient of the Walt Disney Studios Screenwriting Fellowship.
