Just last week it was revealed that Dylan McDermott had signed up to star in the action-thriller Freezer, for director Mikael Salomon. Now he’s got some company as Twilight and Nurse Jackie star Peter Facinelli has joined the cast. Filming start in Edmonton, Canada later this month. Yuliya Snigir (A Good Day to Die Hard) also stars.
Robert (McDermott) is an everyday guy who finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he wakes up 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. Surprised as anyone would be, Robert finds he is not alone in the freezer when he finds Sam (Facinelli) hiding behind a series of boxes. Unsure of each other, but stuck in a battle together, the two must join forces and fight for their lives before they freeze to death, as the truth slowly reveals itself.
Producer Lee Nelson commented, “Peter Facinelli will surprise a lot of people with this character. There is a subtlety and depth to his choices that keeps us guessing at every turn. It’s something we haven’t seen from him before and it’s truly exciting to watch.”
