House of Wax: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Van Holt has been cast as the villain in Dark Castle Entertainment's House of Wax for Warner Bros. Pictures/Village Roadshow Pictures.

"Wax," currently filming in Australia, is a remake of the 1953 classic horror film "House of Wax 3-D," which starred Vincent Price and was directed by Andre de Toth. That Warners picture centered on a mad professor who used human bodies covered with wax in his wax museum. The new version will depart from the original but will retain the gruesome "human bodies in wax" element and focus on a group of teens who fall prey to demented killers who have a penchant for encasing their victims in wax.
