TORONTO — Multitasking punk icon Henry Rollins is attached to star in a miniseries spinoff of the recently completed indie horror-comedy feature “He Never Died.”
Toronto-based 108 Media began shopping the miniseries earlier this month at Mipcom and will bring it to the American Film Market in Santa Monica next month. The company also repped “He Never Died” at last year’s AFM.
The TV project will see Rollins sink his teeth deeper into the role of Jack, the immortal, bloodthirsty outcast at the center of the feature, which was lensed in Toronto.
“He Never Died” writer-director Jason Krawczyk, producer Zach Hagen of Alternate Ending Studio and producers David Miller and Adrienne Stern are also attached to the series.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the unique and bloody horror to Rollins’ cult following through this miniseries,” said 108 founder Abhi Rastogi. “The subject matter is unlike any other, giving audiences the chance to explore a whole new fictional world.”
