Variety reports that Sean "Samwise Gamgee" Astin will be joining Taryn Manning, Kevin Pollak and Johnathon Schaech in the indie thriller. Manning, who first broke through in "8 Mile," recently starred in "The Perfect Age of Rock 'n' Roll"; Schaech previously shared the screen with McGowan in Gregg Araki's hyper-violent and sexy '95 film "The Doom Generation."
The film is based on writer and professor Hans Ostrom's novel "Three to Get Ready," a title that will unfortunately get the Stray Cats stuck in your head for days. Ostrom, who's a professor at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and first-time director Michael Kerr worked together on adapting the novel. The two met in a screenwriting workshop in the '90s.
