McDowell Behind Another Doomsday

Malcolm McDowell has joined the cast of Rogue Pictures’ action thriller “Doomsday,” which is in its final month of principal photography under writer/director Neil Marshall (“The Descent”).

McDowell plays Kane, the brilliant scientist who is the only true expert on the lethal Reaper virus that an elite group of specialists (led by Eden [Rhona Mitra] and monitored by Nelson [Bob Hoskins]) is battling through what one character calls “hell on earth” to retrieve a cure for.

The genre vet is keeping busy with a key role on NBC’s “Heroes” and playing Dr. Loomis in Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween” later this Summer.
