Dexter's Devon Graye, CJ Thomason and Wes Chatham are set to star in the horror feature Husk, from After Dark Films. They join Tammin Sursok (Aquamarine).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brett Simmons wrote the script and is directing the project, which is based on Simmons' short film that played at Sundance.

The story sees five friends on a weekend trip who become stranded in isolated farmland when crows attack their SUV. They soon realize that the cornfields are inhabited by reanimated human scarecrows who reproduce by killing and force their undead victims to join their ranks.

Graye plays the brainiac of the group, Thomason is the blue-collar guy, and Chatham is the jock.

The movie is shooting in Iowa. After Dark has a distribution deal with Lionsgate.
