Electra Avellan is set to star in actor/producer/director Michael Biehn’s Hidden in the Woods, a remake of Chilean filmmaker Patricio Vallardes’ incest-fueled survival thriller En Las Afueras de La Ciudad. She joins a cast that includes Biehn and his wife and co-producer Jennifer Blanc-Biehn.
The film follows the horrific ordeal endured by two sisters as they’re hunted in the woods by a drug lord looking to collect on the money their incestuous and incarcerated father owes him. I’m guessing Avellan will play one of the sisters, which hopefully means that her twin Elise Avellan will be cast as the other sister.
The Avellan sisters made their Hollywood debut as the “Crazy Babysitters” in the 2007 Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino collaboration Grindhouse. Since then, they’ve starred together in the island thriller The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond and the upcoming Machete Kills.
