According to Variety, "Six Feet Under" thesp Jeremy Sisto is starring in Sony's Population 436, which Michelle MacLaren will direct for producer Gavin Polone. Limp Bizkit crooner Fred Durst will also star.

Shooting begins in Winnipeg in mid-June.

The psychological thriller concerns an idyllic town whose population of 436 has remained unchanged for 100 years. Sent out to find the reason for this consistency, a census-taker (Sisto) finds that something much more sinister may be at hand.

The script was written by tyro Michael Kingston.

"Population 436" is MacLaren's first feature. Helmer's TV credits include Fox's The X-Files and "John Doe."
