Cursed: According to FilmJerk, Wes Craven's troubled production of Cursed, is back on track. Three strangers are united by a savage werewolf attack, forcing to fight for survival, against both the beast and the dangers of its virulent curse. Here's the scoop:
According to our sources, and backed up by casting documents we have obtained, producers are looking to cast a character named Jake, who is in listed as being in his mid-to-late 20s. Described as "the ultimate leading man of mystery, he is handsome, with deep, piercing eyes and a small town charm. But there is also a real sense of darkness that is simultaneously unreachable and irresistible. With a secret life and questionable motives, he is someone to be approached with caution." These casting notes are currently being circulated among actor's agents. This character name does not match any of the previously cast roles listed on the film's page on either IMDB or Greg's Previews.
Director/producer Wes Craven recently told Sci Fi Wire that many of the film's scenes will have to be reshot, as well as possibly recast, in the next phase of production, saying that "quite an extraordinary amount of new material is going to be shot, and a lot of material is going to be thrown away."
Listed on the casting documents as part of the film are only Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg, Scott Foley and Shannon Elizabeth. While this doesn't mean that Skeet Ulrich and others have been cut from the film, it does confirm that these four actors are going to be a part of the new shoot.
