Stephen Rea, Ron Perlman, and German actor Benno Furmann have all signed on to the sci-fi thriller, The Mutant Chronicles.

Thomas Jane and John Malkovich are already part of the cast that will see Rea plays the former commander of Lieutenant Mitch Hunter (Jane), a 23rd century Marine who tries to save Earth by leading a band of soldiers against evil NecroMutants. The Hollywood Reporter says Perlman portrays the leader of a religious sect who thinks he can destroy the mutants and save the planet, recruiting Hunter to join him.

The Mutant Chronicles is set to begin shooting in the summer, under the direction of Simon Hunter.
