Harold Perrineau (Lost) has joined the cast of the indie thriller Killing Jar, with Michael Madsen and Danny Trejo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Young (Tooth and Nail) is directing a script he wrote about a stranger armed with a shotgun who takes seven patrons hostage at a remote roadside diner. As the body count rises, the survivors discover that one of the hostages might be more dangerous than their captor.

Perrineau, who is also producing, plays one of the hostages, a traveling salesman named John.

Filming started during the weekend in North Carolina.
