Will Patton (“Halloween,” “Shots Fired”) has been cast in a major role opposite Crystal Reed in the streaming drama series “Swamp Thing” based on the DC comic title.
Written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, the series follows Abby Arcane (Reed) as she investigates what appears to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana, but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.
Patton plays the town’s most prominent businessman, Avery Sunderland. Projecting a benevolent veneer with good deeds always giving back to the community, underneath lies a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.
Verheiden, Dauberman, James Wan, Len Wiseman and Michael Clear produce the series for Warner Bros. Television with the project set to premiere in 2019 on the DC Universe digital subscription service. Wiseman will direct the pilot.
