Horror Equity Fund, Inc. has announced that MMA star Steve Mowry has joined the cast of The Harvester as the film’s villain.
Written by HEF’s Brian Herskowitz and based on the graphic novel series “Rise of the Harvester” by renowned graphic artist Steve McGinnis, The Harvester revolves around a hell-spawned, malevolent killer who is tasked with “harvesting” souls by his father, the king of Hell. The Harvester sets his sights on one very special child and it’s up to a courageous mother to keep her offspring safe.
Pittsburgh native Mowry turned pro in 2016 and is currently undefeated in the MMA. He recently signed with Viacom-owned promotor, Bellator MMA.
As a fan of film and horror culture, I was ecstatic to be able to be a part of a project such as this. After reviewing Steve McGinnis body of work and learning of his strong cult-like following, I look forward to bringing his character to life. I promise not to let any of his fans down!” says Mowry.
We were searching for the right combination of intimidation and innocence.” says Marlon Schulman, HEF CEO. “The 6’8” Mowry has the size matched with youth, and a Pennsylvania clean-cut look that is perfect.”
The Harvester is set to begin filming late next year or in early 2020. We’ll keep you posted.
