John Rhys-Davies to Star in Horror Movie ‘Aux’

Veteran Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies is starring in and executive producing Evolutionary Films’ action-horror movie “Aux” with shooting set to begin Jan. 13.

John Adams, the CEO of London-based Evolutionary, is directing from a script he co-wrote with Peter Adams. Diane Shorthouse is producing.

“Aux” begins when two young boys discover the entrance to a secret military bunker that has been undetected since World War II with both subsequently killed. A police investigation is initiated but the officers are killed in grotesque and mysterious ways while a WWII veteran in a nursing home — played by Rhys-Davies — sees these events unfolding on the news and believes he may know what is going on.

Rhys-Davies is best known for playing Gimli the dwarf in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the Arab excavator Sallah in the Indiana Jones films. He has also had leading roles in “Victor Victoria,” “The Living Daylights” and “King Solomon’s Mines.”

Rhys-Davis’ TV credits include “Once Upon a Time” and “Star Trek: Voyager.” He’s starring in MTV’s new science-fiction series “The Shannara Chronicles,” which debuts Tuesday.

“John brings a depth of character to the part and a wealth of knowledge as an exec producer,” Shorthouse said. “I’m looking forward to a great collaboration.”
