Rathbone Cast In Barker’s Dread

Jackson Rathbone (“Twilight”) has been cast in an upcoming film adaptation of Clive Barker’s “Dread” for Matador and Essential Entertainment says STYD.

Written and directed by Anthony DiBlasi, the story tells of Quaid, a student of philosophy, who is obsessed by his own nightmare of an axe murdering clown so he concocts a series of experiments to observe firsthand how other people react to the things that most horrify them.

But while Quaid slowly unpeels the psyches of his imprisoned and tortured captives like a reeking onion, his own dread waits, just beyond his control.

Principal photography begins this October in the UK.
