Gregory Blair "The Horrific Evil Monsters"
- June 15, 2018
-- Award winning actor Gregory Blair (Garden Party Massacre
) has signed on to play Famine in Adam Steigert's new film "The Horrific Evil Monsters" (aka THEM), scheduled to shoot summer of 2019. Blair is known for bringing odd characters to life and Steigert films often provide them in abundance, so the match holds great promise. Blair previously worked with Steigert in "Fang", so the pairing is clearly something that works.
"I'm excited to work with Adam again," Blair says. "He's a vetted, visionary director who knows what he wants and how to achieve it, but he's totally comfortable allowing his actors to bring their own creative value to the table. Together, I think we made Fang's creepy caretaker Harold into something iconic and I feel confident that we will be able to make Famine equally memorable."
While this Famine is indeed the famed being who makes up a quarter of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he and the other three are far from the familiar manifestations of yore. In a completely reimagining of the mythology, when the Horsemen arrive to bring about the end of mankind, earthly monsters and other creatures unite to fight them. This Famine--unlike any previous incarnation—
is fascinated with human culture and, through each interaction with them, he becomes more and more torn with the decision to destroy them.
"I wrote the role of Famine with Gregory in mind," Steigert said. "He pulled off the odd ambivalence that makes Harold so intriguing in "Fang", I knew he could do the same for what I wanted to do with the character of Famine. There was one scene in particular I just knew was going to resonant with him, so I was hopeful he would like the role. When he sent me a video of how he'd like to play the character, I knew immediately my gut was right. He literally gave me chills. I think he'll give everyone chills."
"The Horrific Evil Monsters" is slated to shoot next summer through ARS Productions with a proposed 2020 release date.
