Look At Me Films announced today that Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos, Entourage) is set to star alongside Deanna Russo (Being Human) in Hunting Season.
Bruce Davison, Sean Maher, and Paula Graces have also joined the cast for the third film from The Ice Cream Truck director Megan Freels.
Russo plays the near-desperately single Piper opposite Sigler who plays her roommate Abby, a street-smart social worker. Frequent Joss Whedon collaborator Sean Maher (Firefly) plays Piper’s new boyfriend, James. When their romantic weekend goes awry, Abby must track her to his family’s hunting lodger before it’s too late. “The real danger in this film isn’t being chased through the woods by a psycho in a maks – it’s the 1%.
Bruce Davison (Insidious) is set to play James’ father, a wealthy hunter whose desires have gone beyond “big game” and Paula Garces (Harold and Kumar) also joins the cast alongside frequent Johnston collaborator Hilary Barraford (“United States of Tara”), who also serves as executive producer.
Johnston’s previous film The Ice Cream Truck, a horror comedy about a bored housewife, was released last year to critical acclaim. Hunting Season will continue Johnston’s series of films that explore the unique fears that women face in today’s society—a departure from typical indie horror fare, which often looks only at the part (or parts) rather than the whole woman. Hunting Season is set to shoot this fall.
