Iconic Canadian horror director David Cronenberg is expanding his acting resume.
Shudder has revealed that Cronenberg will be starring in the fourth season of Slasher currently being filmed in Ontario, Canada.
Cronenberg has starred in Star Trek: Discovery, the mini-series Alias Grace, Alias, Jason X, The Fly and Night Breed although he is known for his films which include Shivers, Rabid, The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, Spider and Eastern Promises.
As with the past installments of the series, Slasher: Flesh & Blood will combine elements of traditional murder mystery with the intense horror and bold kills that audiences have come to expect. Slasher: Flesh & Blood will have eight episodes and will air next year.
Flesh & Blood will continue Slasher’s trend of bringing back cast members in new roles. Returning from previous seasons are Paula Brancati, Jefferson Brown, Patrice Goodman, Sabrina Grdevich, and Christopher Jacot. New faces this year include Rachael Crawford (Heartland), Jeananne Goosen (The Walking Dead), Sydney Meyer (Departure) and Alex Ozerov (The Americans).
In Flesh & Blood, a wealthy but dysfunctional family gathering for a reunion on a secluded island. Their old wounds and competitive rivalries flare up when the family realizes a masked killer is on the island, intent on cruelly picking them off one by one.
“Slasher is clever, bloody, scary and fun, and adding David Cronenberg to the mix will take this new installment of the series to the next level,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s general manager. “We couldn’t be more excited to work with Aaron Martin and the team over at Shaftesbury to bring Slasher: Flesh and Blood to Shudder members.”
