Dominic Monaghan (LOST) and Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) have signed on to producer-actor Larry Fessenden's Glass Eye Pix's horror film I SELL THE DEAD, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.
Monaghan has the role of an 18th century gravedigger and Perlman will play his priest. Fessenden (BROKEN FLOWERS) will also play Monaghan's London corpse trading partner. Angus Scrimm, who is best known as the Tall Man in the PHANTASM horror series, is in final negotiations to play the aristocratic doctor who buys the dead bodies.
Glenn McQuaid wrote and will direct the film, which will start shooting in New York in May. Peter Phok and Fessenden will produce via Glass Eye's Scareflix label.
