It’s been announced that Dylan McDermott will star in Freezer, an action-thriller that starts shooting this month in Edmonton, Canada. Mikael Salomon is set to direct from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld.
The film sees McDermott as Robert, an everyday guy who finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs. They insist he returns the $8 million dollars he stole from them, the only problem is, Robert has no idea what they are talking about. As he fights for his life before freezing to death, the truth slowly reveals itself.
Producer Lee Nelson commented, “We are excited that Dylan McDermott and Mikael Salomon have come together on this project. Their collaboration will combine Dylan’s intensity as an actor with Salomon’s powerful direction to capture an edge of your seat fight for life.”
McDermott will soon be seen in Olympus Has Fallen with Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman for director Antoine Fuqua, and Behaving Badly with Selena Gomez for director Tim Garrick.
