THE NIGHT WATCHMEN: Director Of HOLY GHOST PEOPLE Is Back With A New Horror Comedy
Mitchell Altieri, one half of The Butcher Brothers (The Violent Kind and The Hamiltons) and director of Holy Ghost People, has started on his next film, a horror comedy called The Night Watchmen. The story and screenplay were written by Ken Arnold and Dan DeLuca, who both have parts in the film, and Jamie Nash.
The cast is being led by James Remar (Dexter), which also includes the aforementioned Ken Arnold (House of Cards) and Dan DeLuca (Veep). They are joined by Kevin Jiggetts (Castle), Max Gray Wilbur (How to Get Away With Murder), Kara Luiz (MTV's Jerks With Cameras), Diona Reasonover (the upcoming Buzzy's), Tiffany Shepis (Sharknado 2), Rain Pryor (Head of the Class) and Matt Servitto (Banshee).
In the film, written by DeLuca and Jamie Nash, three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a beautiful, fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle to save their lives. A mistaken warehouse delivery unleashes a horde of hungry vampires, and these unlikely heroes must not only save themselves but also stop the scourge that threatens to take over the city of Baltimore.
"We're thrilled to have such an accomplished ensemble cast," said Executive Producer Cheryl Staurulakis. "These professionals are delivering nuanced performances of their characters, which are compassionate, psychopathic and comedic. They are a perfect fit for "The Night Watchmen."
