Piper Perabo (Carriers, “Covert Affairs”) is the first female lead cast in director David Hackl’s (Saw 5) upcoming killer grizzly thriller Red Machine. The pretty Texas-born stunner will star opposite Billy Bob Thorton (Sling Blade), James Marsden (Straw Dogs) and Thomas Jane (Punisher).
Written by Rick Cleveland (”Six Feet Under”) and J.R. Reher, Red Machine follows two estranged brothers (Marsden, Jane) and their girlfriends as they attempt to escape from the bloodthirsty grizzly stalking them throughout the Alaskan wilderness.
According to Deadline, Perabo will play a deaf photographer engaged to Jane’s character, whom she met while working the Iraq War. Production on the film begins this month in Vancouver.
