McDermott Joins King Adaptation “Mercy”

Dylan McDermott has joined the cast of Peter Cornwell’s “Mercy,” a fantasy-horror feature based on Stephen King’s short story “Gramma”.

Published in the 1985 anthology “Skeleton Crew,” the story follows two young boys who, along with their single mother (Frances O’Connor), take care of their elderly, senile grandmother.

They discover she’s a witch who made a deal with a dark force years beforehand. Chandler Riggs and Joel Courtney also star while Jason Blum, McG and Mary Viola will produce.
