Lionsgate has set an April 24 DVD release date for director Jonathan Glendening’s Night Wolf (formerly titled 13HRS). The film marks the horror film acting debut of British model-turned-actress Gemma Atkinson.
She tells Film 4:
I hope it’s the first of many as I loved it! What drew me to the role is the fact that it’s a horror movie; I love a good gory movie. Yes, many of them are cheesy and predictable, but there’s something about them which we all love. It was also a good story and a great cast and crew, so I was thrilled to be involved.
Night Wolf tells the story of a dysfunctional family trapped in their house during a violent storm while a bloodthirsty creature hunts them down. Toplining the film are Isabella Calthorpe and Harry Potter franchise star Tom Felton.
Atkinson will also be seen later this year in Black and Blue Films’ in-flight frightener Airborne. The busty (34-E!) stunner is best known for playing self-cutter Lisa Hunter on the British teen-soap “Hollyoaks” and its various spinoffs.
