Kevin Durand Joins the Cast of Universal’s Monster Thriller by Radio Silence




In terms of size and talent, the cast for Radio Silence’s (V/H/S, Southbound, Scream, Scream VI) enigmatic “Untitled Monster Thriller” for Universal is looking enormous. Dan Stevens was recently added to the cast, and now Kevin Durand (Tragedy Girls, “The Strain”) has been added, according to Deadline.

Durand is no new to the world of horror, particularly when it comes to playing villains or morally problematic characters. Of course, specifics for this project are still under wraps. The actor’s most recent roles are “Locke & Key” on Netflix and the “Swamp Thing” television series, both of which were made by James Wan. The following movie featuring Durand is Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

Earlier this week, Alisha Weir from Matilda: The Musical also joined the cast.

Recently, Melissa Barrera joined the cast of the enigmatic untitled horror film, playing an important role in both of Radio Silence’s Scream films.

According to Deadline, “In the vein of Universal’s recent films like The Invisible Man and Renfield, the Radio Silence thriller will provide a unique take on legendary monster lore, representing a fresh, new direction for how to celebrate these classic characters.”

The project was earlier hinted at as having the working title Dracula’s Daughter. The main plot of the project involved a bunch of kidnappers who kidnap a group of young individuals, one of whom becomes the main character. The kidnappers will suffer as a result. Barrera plays one of the kidnappers, and Weir plays the abduction victim who turns out to be more than she seems.

At Project X Entertainment, Chad Villella will serve as producer alongside William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and James Vanderbilt. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett will direct the film.

Guy Busick revised Stephen Shields’ original script after it had been written.

In what ways does that affect Scream 7? Although the third film in the new franchise hasn’t yet been revealed, we anticipate Ghostface will soon make another appearance.
