'Creepshow' Reboot: Tricia Helfer, David Arquette, and Dana Gould Join Cast
The "Creepshow" reboot has added three more stars.
Tricia Helfer, David Arquette, and Dana Gould have joined the upcoming Shudder series, Deadline reports. They'll star in three new stories that are part of the anthology. It is based on the 1982 film from writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero.
Helfer, who recently starred in "Lucifer," is a lead in the story "Lydia Layne's Better Half." It follows a powerful woman who opts not to promote her protégée and lover, and then faces unanticipated consequences. It was written by John Harrison, based on a story by him and showrunner Greg Nicotero. Roxann Benjamin will direct.
Meanwhile, Scream series veteran Arquette is set for "Times Is Tough in Musky Holler," which will be helmed by Harrison. It centers on former town leaders who learn what it's like to be on the other side of fear and intimidation. John Skipp and Dori Miller wrote the episode based on their own short story.
Finally, Gould will star in "Skincrawlers," which is to be directed by Benjamin. Gould is known for writing and producing "The Simpsons" and has starred in "Stan Against Evil." His "Creepshow" story was written by Paul Dini and Stephen Langford and follows a man considering a weight loss treatment that has unexpected complications.
"Creepshow" will consist of six episodes, each of which include two stories. Other cast members include Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, and Tobin Bell, and horror legend Tom Savini has recently joined as one of the directors.
"Creepshow" is slated to premiere later this year on AMC's Shudder.
